Dear Jeff,

You can use Scale Gun to control the aphids on your Pittosporums. But would be careful though if you experience frosts in your area when using the product as it does contain Yates White Oil and it may burn if there is oil present on the leaf. Yates have another product called PestOil which does contain unique UV protectants lessening the risk of damage to plant material.
