Black growth on my plant and ants eating them.

Hi guys, I have found black spots on a plant which had a few ants eating them. I do not have a clue what type of plant it is as I did not plant it. If you can tell me which product to use to kill them that would be great. Thanks Tony

Thank you for contacting Yates.

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