How do you get rid of white louse scale on citrus trees?

We live in the Newcastle so we are costal.Now that we are in Spring I believe that it is too late to use lime sulphur according to the label.

Dear Vanessa,

The ideal time to use Yates Lime Sulphur to clean up the infestation of white louse scale on your citrus is during winter. PestOil and Yates White Oil is registered for soft scale but not white louse scale. You could try using a stiff brush to remove the existing scale and then next winter apply the Lime Sulfur to prevent infestation.
