Any easy and effective way to rid green scales and white flies?

<< < (2/3) > >>

Daintree:
If you use Azera, make sure you add a "sticker/spreader" or it won't stay on the leaves long enough to kill the scale. I have also had really good luck with Imidicloprid. I find the liquid easier to mix than the granules. But it is very toxic to beneficial insects also, so timing is critical.

I now have a Ruby supreme I'm going to have one more go at, I'll see what happens this time but I'll add Dr. Bronners home made insecticidal soap into the regimen.  .

My ruby supreme is the worst for bugs,Iím about to ditch it. My cattley guava is completely pest free and flowers/fruits non stop.

Thanks everybody! If I use Azera, is it enough just to spray the foliage? Or should I drench the soil too?

simon_grow:
Spraying the foliage is enough and definitely use a spreader/sticker/extender. I use Nufilm. Also, using a Fogger will create a must that penetrates the foliage better and itís faster and is more efficient with the reagents.

Thank you Simon. Are there instructions on it as to how much to mix it with other pesticides such as Azera? Also, Nufilm is not available on Amazon or Ebay. Is there another organic brand you can recommend?
