So I look at my sago palm and there is white scale all over it.All my sago palm leaves are brown.I thought is this a white fungus on my sago palm?I live in St Augustine Florida and I have seen this everywhere.
At first I did not know what it was, All I knew is, my sago palm leaves were turning white, then brown, and dying.There are so many different bugs and etc. than lets face it,I'm thinking mealy bugs but after a few hours of research I knew my solution.
My neighbors had cut theirs out, but I liked them so I wanted to save them.Are your sago plants dying?There is help.
Well I had been playing around with a product that was all about
hydrogen peroxide,a powder that was dissolved in water so I could spray
it.Well lo and behold all my sago palms are better now.What i found was the Simix loosens the scale so they are easily rinsed off of the plant.I do have to spray them down about three times a year as the scale seems to return.However one of my Sago palms has remained scale free.
The appearance of white
fuzzy stems, leaves and trunks signals a huge problem. Scale is a tiny
sucking insect and, in high populations, the bugs can sap the plant of
much of its life-giving fluid and kill it.
The insects have a protective waxy armor, which is white to yellow. They
are so tiny that finding the problem before the plant is overrun is
almost impossible. Once the population has bloomed, all parts of your
plant can be infected and the pest’s presence is obvious.They are like little vampires that bite in and suck the life out of the plant.
You can prevent what you see on the right with a proper maintenance.It does take maintenance and I have found about every six months.
