How much do I need to treat a sago palm for cycade scale?

What are the proportions to dilute Safari? How much Safari product do I need to treat the palm 5-6 times? Will Safari kill the existing scale (so that I don't have to cut off the infested leaves), or do I still need to cut all infested leaves (which is almost all the leaves) and only treat whatever will be left of the palm with Safari?


The dilution rate for a foliar spray would be 1.0 tsp per gallon of water to cover 200 sq ft. We recommend that you speak with the manufacturer of Safari so they can provide additional treatment options and times using their product. Valent Corp 800.682.5368
