What product should i use for juniper scale ?

I have a bonsai thats about 10y its now got juniper scale.
never had it before and its quite heavy all over the plant.
I have used Confidor on it will this kill off the bug?

Answer: Hi Leslie,
Confidor is effective against scale and will not harm the juniper plant. You may need to apply a second application in a fortnight if the population is very high. Pest oil can also be used which will suffocate the scale.

To help the plant recover from the scale attack apply some Yates Uplift Organic Liquid Fertiliser.
