White spots/pods on plants
Does anyone know what these are? They are on the leaves of my banana plant and peony. And if yes, how can I fix it?? Thanks!
Hi [303086,Callie]! If you look up "white scale" on google it looks like these resemble your uninvited guest, however, it's hard to confirm by the photo provided. If you believe this to be the case though and the infestation is low you can start by spot treating the plant. Using a q-tip/cotton pad dipped in alcohol or neem/horticulture oil will help get them off on contact. Although if they are armored scale they might have a hard time budging and picking them right off is sometimes easier. Afterwards I would then spray the entire plant down with an organic insecticide and monitor it over the next few weeks!
