Scale insects impact perennials plants including many trees, vines and shrubs. Both armored and soft scale feed on plant fluids, weakening and killing plants. Soft scale also produce a sticky honeydew that encourages the growth of sooty mold, disrupting photosynthesis. Armored scales do not produce honeydew but usually produce several generations per year making them hard to control.
