Is it best to use Yates scale gun on teddy bear magnolia to treat small cocoon bugs? Do I just spray infected?

Do I just spray the infected leaves or whole plant?

Hi Kate,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Looks like it's an egg sack or pupated caterpillar. Unfortunately, we do not have any product registered for this insect at this stage. Best to hand remove the infestation. 

Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
