What to do about scale in your garden

Symptoms

Our “gogga” of the month for June (Scale) causes yellowing plants, which eventually die. Scale can also cause the growth of sooty mould on plants.

What does this mean for me/my plants?

Scale are little critters which suck the sap from plants, leaving them with no nutrition to survive. If left untreated, the plants will eventually die off.

Suggested Action

Treat with a contact insecticide. Visit your local GCA garden centre forĀ advice on the best insecticide for you!
