    Thanks, Joe. I had a problem with scale on my catts. I lost some plants before I got it under control..This article is very helpful. I printed it out for future use, if necessary.

    I had a small case of scale on two plants and used imidacloprid also and it seemed to have worked. Made me a bit paranoid though I check my plants daily for signs of the little blighters. Good article thank you for sharing it with us.

    That was a good article. I am with Gin, now that the plants aren't in my house, I usually head straight for the heavy-duty stuff. And although I don't use it as often, I must say that systemic insecticides have a particular appeal-"you eat my plant, you die little buggers."
