I haven't sprayed in months and all of a sudden, I have Croton scale everywhere in the garden. Plants deep in the middle that never had a problem, now have scale. A few that had it very bad last year have already got branches with the green monsters. I sprayed 2 gallons of Organicide and Malathion mixed on most of the Crotons and then another 2 gallons of just Malathion on the worst hit plants. If it's this bad in December, I can't imagine what we're going to be dealing with come June.
