Check Your Yard for These Pests

Scale insects feed on leaves or branches of many ornamental plants grown in landscapes and nurseries. They damage plants by extracting plant fluids through a stylet. This can reduce plant growth and vigor. The most common symptom of soft scale infestation is accumulation of honeydew and sooty mold on or beneath a plant. Other symptoms include premature leaf drop and branch dieback. Heavy infestations can kill trees and are common on trees stressed by physical damage, drought, or improper planting.
