I have quite a lot of Lilly Pilly trees and quite a few are strting to be infested with a pest. I assume I could kill them with a pesticide of some type, but would much prefer an organic method of fixing/controlling this.


Does anyone know what these are? Any ideas on how to fix it?


Photos attached.


thanks

Hi Lachlan

This looks like White Wax Scale. To treat it you really have a couple of safe options:

Physically remove them by hand - best during the winter.
Spray them with a horticultural oil - a home made white oil is a good option


I have included a link for making an organic vegetable based white oil (some are petroleum based so be careful):
