Do I need to prune all the branches off?
Safari Insecticide, a super-systemic insecticide with quick uptake and knockdown, controls a broad spectrum of ferocious and invasive pests, including scale. The dilution rate for a foliar spray would be 1.0 tsp per gallon of water to cover 200 sq ft. You do not need to trim infested branches unless they are so badly damaged that they cannot recover. 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
