The window of opportunity for treating Magnolia Scale is almost upon us. Magnolia scale is an insect although it sometimes look like a disease. It can only be treated when the miniature insects are on the move, in the spring and just about right now - Mid-to-Late August through September. The adult insects have a waxy coating that surrounds them making it nearly impossible to treat except for the periods where the next generation is on the move. Don't miss this critical opportunity to treat your magnolia trees for this insect.
Now is a great time to take a walk through your landscape and look for scale on your mangnolias. Left untreated it can kill your tree.
