Where do mites and scale come from
Where do Scale and Mites come from. Two winters ago before I really new what I was doing it was mite city on my Pigmy D.P. and Christmas palm. Last year I misted and ran a fan and had no problem with mites but come early spring my Majesty palm came down with scale and died. I've worked to hard on my palms to lose another especailly my coconut. I plan on using some systemic granuels in a few weeks a a means of prevention (I can't once they're inside because of my cat's). Where do these pests lie dormant? The soil, on the surface of the plant, Could the scate that killed my majesty palm be lying dormant in the rugs of my living room. Is there anything I can do in my house to minimize the problem before I bring the palms in for the winter. I'd apprecite any advice.
