Can I use Pivot 10 for azalea bark scale? Cottony maple/taxus scale?

University of Maryland recommends "Distance" which has 11.23% pyriproxyfen. I don't have $230 right now to invest in this. Do you think the "Pivot" would work? Scale insects are not on the label... I know.

Answer:

Since scale insects on not listed on the Pivot 10 product label we cannot recommend it for this use.  Unfortunately we do not know of an IGR actually labeled for scale other than the Distance.  You can check with the manufacturer of Pivot 10 directly to confirm it can be used for scale insects.  Control Solutions can be contacted at (281) 892-2500.
