I noticed a sticky residue on my kentia plant leaves. Can I use pest oil or the pyrenthrun plus oil pest spray

Not sure what the residue is. The palm lives outside under the alfresco. I have attached a photo. Thanks

Hi Tania,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Looks like the palm is affected by scales. To control, try 'Yates Nature's Way Citrus & Ornamental Spray (Pyrethrum Plus Oil Pest Spray)'. Controls a wide variety on insects pests on many edibles and ornamentals.
