Scale Insects – Scale insects are the most important pests on many ornamental plants. They are divided into three groups; 1. Armored scales, 2. Soft scales and 3. Mealybugs. Scale insects produce honeydew which is an important food source of some ants. The honeydew will also produce sooty mold on plants which interferes with normal plant growth.
