Yellow Scale on Daphne Leaves

rosey added on April 10, 2011 | Answered

I have sprayed with white oil to no affect. Could you please make a suggestion? The scale is yellow and quite flat. It appears on the back of the leaf but shows through to the front by way of a small yellow blotch.

Also, scale tends to attack plants that have something else weakening them. Apply some fertilizer to the plant and make sure it is getting enough water.
