Answer: Hi Gary,
The insect is a soft scale and if the numbers increase then it is easily controlled with Pest oil. Pest oil 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.
