: : I have scale on my snapdragons--so badly that I have pulled them up. I do not have scale on any of my scrubs and am at a loss to understand what is happening. I am asking for assistance so that I can avert this happening again. Thank you.
: Did you grow them from seed or did you purchase them as plants? If you purchased them as plants, they may have had the scale and you didn't notice.
have you positively identified it as scale? usually scale is found on the woody shrubs and trees. still could be though. what color is it? if it6's reddish, it may be rust. that can be taken care of with sprays or dusts, if it's just a few plants, get rid of 'em. call the place where you bought the plants and ask for their help in identification, don't bring the plant there though, they don't need any problems they don't already have. good luck
