How to control White Louse Scale

White Scale is an immobile, sap-sucking insect that can seriously weaken plants if it colonises them in great numbers. The insect hides under the white waxy substance and sucks on the sap.

Scale affects roses and other ornamentals where it can cause leaf yellowing and drop. It also produces honeydew which encourages sooty mould and ant infestation.
