How do I get rid of scale on my Little Gem Magnolia?

I have 4 other little gem magnolias which are healthy but every year they do get some scale which I can control by removing leaves and if bad branches and spraying white oil. But the scale does still come back once a year so I always have to keep an eye on them is there a way to totally eradicate scale completely.

Hi Jane,

Scale can be a problem to control once it gets out of control. Yates has an excellent product called PestOil which is registered for use on magnolias. Keep your plants healthy with regular applications of Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser.
