  2. Hello, I stumbled across your article while trying to identify the scale which has gained my attention as it seems to absolutely love my pyrocantha. It covers mostly the woody areas of the newest growth. I was away for a week and it has been a most annoying guest to find upon my return. Yours is the closest I have found to what this appears to be, though mine seems somewhat “fuzzier” or cotton like with its white “fur” flying away in a brisk breeze.

    The scale itself is mobile and soft. When pressed it becomes a brownish red liquid quite easily. I was wondering if this was something you might have knowledge of. Oh yes – thank you for that recipe – well rather my plants thank you. – Yours truly, Greg in Charleston, SC USA
