Scale on Dendrobiums

Question:

I have scale on my Dendrobrium kingianum.  How do I to treat it?

Answer:

A dilute mixture of eco oil and water is safe to use on Dendrobriums. Use a mist spray bottle and follow up two weeks later with a second spray to kill the hatchlings.

Alternatively you can drench the plant with “confidor”, a systemic insecticide.
