Q.House Plant Disease

Anonymous added on May 2, 2011 | Answered

I recently purchased a ficus tree.  I did not notice that it was covered in small brown spots. They are about the size of a match head.  I can flick them off with my finger and you can smash them. It is almost like they are bugs, but I don’t think they are.  I have been told that it is called scale. It is killing my three ficus trees. Please help,  I don’t know what to do to kill this parasite.
