Many of the areas where I pruned in the summer are infested with a scale insect and I will have to spray with an insecticide. It may be Wooly apple aphids but I have not as yet looked under the microscope, but at the moment it looks like like scale insects. I will also give the tree a winter tar wash which will help prevent many pests next year.
