Schefflera Plants


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?
