Scale on jasmine plant

Any tips to get rid of scale on jasmine vine

Scale insects have hard bodies which resist typical applications, like Safer’s Soap, to remove them. Basically, you have to use your finger nail to scrape them off the plant. A lot of work, but if you keep doing it on a regular basis, it will keep them down.

The other thing to consider is the health of the plant. Make sure the plant has good soil, appropriate fertilizer and is not stressed by irregular watering, or being in a location it does not really like.

Hope this helps!
