Hi Gary,

The insect is a soft scale and if the numbers increase then it is easily controlled with PestOil . PestOil works by suffocating the scale and can be sprayed when there is fruit present. There is only a 1 day withholding period i.e. the fruit can be picked 1 day after spraying. Fertilise the tree at least twice a year - spring and autumn.
