Insect Pest Control : How to Control Scale Insects on Indoor Plants


Hi, I’m Trevor, with Monster Pest Control.
We’re located in American Fork, Utah. We’re taking about ridding your home of insects.
This topic is taking care of your indoor plants from scale insects, and scale insects are
an insect that lives on the back of the plants and will start eating away at the plants.
They’ll start killing off your plants; putting holes in your plants and things like that,
so what we do is with our mixture of vinegar and water, again we spray the plants down;
rubbing them down and taking away any of the scales that we see. Also, with the with the
plants, sometimes if they’re really heavily damaged and you have a lot of, a lot of problems
and issues with your plant you may want to just throw your plant away. Quite often if
you have a really infested plant that infested plant will infest other plants. Worst-case
scenario would be to throw away your plant. And if you have any other questions you can
contact us.

  1. So, how do I recognize "scale", as opposed to other infestation? Whats the ratio of vinegar to water? If scale will attack even a pothos, won't all my other plants have it? Will just one treatment do the trick, or how many times do I do this and how often? Which plants are most likely to have problems with scale?

  2. Hey butt-munch. I didn't see any scales on that plant. Thanks for wasting 1:05 minutes of my life. Plus 0:20 writing this. I wish I could bill you – you son of a bitch.

  3. For scale on plants formula is mix each 1oz of mineral oil to 1 cup of water.spray frequently until infestation is controlled.it works.
