Information About Scale Insects in Golden, CO

Scale affects a variety of trees. The insect adheres itself to the tree branch or needles and feeds on the nutrients and water of the plant. With a high enough population, this can cause severe decline in your trees. There are two families of scales out here. We have both hard and soft shelled scales. The good news is that they are controllable. Most of the time, a time specific spray, or an injection will keep them controlled.
