I am trying to get rid of a parasite found on my two year old Mexican Lime (citrus aurantifolium). The fallen leaves exhibit tiny brown spots on their underside (less than a millimeter). Some of them crawl. I suspect that these are Brown Soft Scales "Coccus hesperidum". I keep my plant on the balcony (Zone 10)

Could anybody help me? Thanks

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
