How to get rid of these on my acerola?
« on: September 29, 2019, 07:44:12 PM »
I've tried spraying them off with the water hose, but they always return.
What can I do next to permanently kill them?
Thanks,

Japanese maple cottony scale or white bugs are always insufficient fresh air and high humidity conditions....
to get rid of them: use pesticide or egg yolk methode.

I have these on my acerola tree also. It's from all the ants.  I was too lazy to put the tacky feet on the trunk.  Yesterday i poured some DE around the truck.  When winter comes around, it should be less.  Next year I will put the tacky feet.

Egg yolk? Please elaborate.
