Is it a greenish blue insect scale or a greenish blue substance that looks like scales? If it is an insect, try neem oil. I have found that useful on scale. This article will help with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/problems/pests/neem-oil-uses.htm If it is a substance, then it is likely lichen, which can be unsightly but does not kill plants.
