I've sprayed with eco-oil on my lilly pilly to control a whit sticky patch but it doesn't seem to have helped
The white patch is on one only bush but, there are 35 other lilly pilly. How to prevent scale (?) from infecting the remainder?
White wax scale are difficult to control when they are large and have a thick covering. The best time to treat this scale is during Spring when the small scale and crawlers are present. PestOil can be used and good coverage of the scale is important. A follow up spray will be required. You could also try to wipe off the scale wearing a pair of washing up gloves. This will squash the scale.
