Hi some of my sago palms are developing yellow spots on the leaf then the leaf dies from the spot up any ideas? I spay then with white oil/pride for scale and also acelepryn for grubs.

Welcome!

Is this happening on the old leaves? New leaves? Can you show us a photo of the whole plant?

Having a second look it seems only the new hardened flush is getting attacked, also noticed alot of tiny white mosquito looking insects flying away when I spray them.

Don't think it's white flys since these look more like a translucent mosquito I'm guessing fungus gnats but the only photos of fungus gnats I could find show they are black.
