Chris from San Jose writes,

Is Avid effective in controlling scale insects on woody ornamentals, such as podocarpus?

If not, do you have other recommendations. The temperature is currently too warm for use of oils without damage to new growth, but I could wait for a cooler week.


Avid 0.15 EC Miticide Insecticide is the best insecticide for mites and leaf miners. ImidaPro 2SC is labeled for the treatment of scale insects on ornamentals. Please refer to the product label for complete mixing and application instructions.
