I used isopropyl alcohol a while back and spot treated best I could, don't see any cotton scale. This is what I used on my oranges last spring and seems to have worked again. Will update if I see more soon. Haven't been in the yard much it's been cold and rainy.

I had mealy bugs on an in ground pomegranate.  I used a hose with an attached adjustable brass nozzle to wash them off the tree just as Spaugh wrote.

I've applied imidacloprid at the highest listed rate, as a soil drench, to half of my trees.  I removed any fruit from them first. 

The other half I will treat with only soap sprays.
