Hi, I'm Trevor, with Monster Pest Control. We're located in American Fork, Utah. We're taking about ridding your home of insects. This topic is taking care of your indoor plants from scale insects, and scale insects are an insect that lives on the back of the plants and will start eating away at the plants. They'll start killing off your plants; putting holes in your plants and things like that, so what we do is with our mixture of vinegar and water, again we spray the plants down; rubbing them down and taking away any of the scales that we see. Also, with the with the plants, sometimes if they're really heavily damaged and you have a lot of, a lot of problems and issues with your plant you may want to just throw your plant away. Quite often if you have a really infested plant that infested plant will infest other plants. Worst-case scenario would be to throw away your plant. And if you have any other questions you can contact us.
