    We have a funeral home we maintain that has 15 or Burning Bush shrubs with scale on them. What is the best treatment? They are dropping leaves like crazy. These are on the south side of the building and in full sun with drip irrigation.

    I use a tank mix with Acephate and Carbaryl. It works pretty well. Use a spreader/sticker to prolong chemical activity. I spray a lot of landscapes that have various insects with this plus a miticide 3 times a year and it has been working for me!!
