The Issue

Scale insects can be serious pests on trees, shrubs, and other perennials. They are immobile and spend their life in one location. Scales rarely kill host plants but they will weaken a plant which leaves it susceptible to other insects and diseases.

Signs of Scales

The impact of infestations depends on the species, the type of plant, environmental variables, and natural enemies. Populations of some scales can increase dramatically within a few months and will produce large amounts of honeydew, a sticky liquid substance that coats foliage.

The Solution

Treatment options will vary depending on the infestation and plant species.  Please contact us to schedule an evaluation of your shrubs and trees if you see scales on your plants.
