San Pedro Cactus Scale Infestation
My 4′ tall San Pedro cactus has a terrible scale infestation on it’s backside, I would have noticed it sooner if it were infront of me
I think it got it from a cactus we acquired from our neighbors who moved out of their place about 2 months ago.
I would be so sad to see this beauty go but it is pretty well covered and started turning yellow.
I wanted to check in as it seems removing the scale with alcohol may be a good first step and then applying Neem Oil, however, I want to be sensitive to the fact that it is a cactus.
Any tips you can offer would be appreciated –
