The Q&A Archives: Bonide systemic granules for scale on a Schefflera?

Question: I've read that to get rid of scale on a Schefflera, it's good to use systemic granules. First, is this the best treatment? Also, does Home Depot carry this product? Please tell me what you recommend other than washing the plant which I've already done.

Thank you,
Jill Alexander

Answer: Jill,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

That solution should work. Another option is to select a product containing imidocloprid which is also systemic.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
