Help identify scales on Juniper

Post  fngal on Thu Apr 09, 2015 2:57 pm

Hello,

Please help me identify this pest, and how I can get rid of it.
The plant is Juniper expansa 'Parsonii'.

Thank you very much.

Try a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol...might need to repeat several times.

Yup. Or an oil spray -- tho it may be a bit late in the year for an oil spray, judging from the temperatures we've had here today -- almost 90 degrees F.

No point in IDing the scale. They're all nasty critters -- tho they won't kill your tree.

There are little scales between the leaves. It didn't turn into slime.
Somebody told me it's Mealy Bugs, but I don't think it is.
Anyway, I sprayed it with mineral oil, and I will check again in a few days.

Thank you,
Yaron.
