Schefflera

lolita added on June 12, 2011 | Answered

I have a schefflera tree and sometimes I notice the leaves get sticky and on underside of them I find little brown substance like eggs sticking there. I tried to spray an insecticide, and it goes but then returns. Can anyone give me any advice?

There are a few pests that typically affect Schefflera, such as aphids, spider mites and mealybugs. These are all treated with a standard insecticide. I like neem oil, myself. It is safe for people and pets, but very effective on bad bugs. Here is more information on it:
