Tea scale insect control

Gardeners who have camellia plants are probably familiar with tea scale. Tea scale is a small insect around 1/10th of an inch long that resides on the undersides of the leaves of camellias, hollies and a few other host plants. These tiny insects damage plants by sucking out juices inside the leaves. Heavy infestations can severely damage affected plants, resulting in major leaf drop and occasionally plant death if not properly treated.
