Brown Soft Scales

Tangier, Morocco(Zone 10a)


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 in a large pot on the balcony.

Could anybody help me? Thanks
