Sago Palm Scale

Over the course of the last several years, southern U.S. landscapes have lost as much as 70% of their king and queen sagos (cycads) due to the relentless attack of cycad aulacaspis scale (CAS) insects, a small white scale insect from Asia.

How to Identify CAS

CAS is first noticed after it has established on the undersides of the dark green fronds, changing them to a glowing white so that the cycads resemble a small, flocked Christmas tree. This flocked appearance is somewhat attractive, but the sago palms react adversely to the piercing-sucking feeding activity of this scale and turn brown and die within a quick two- to three-year period.

Our sago palm scale product combos feature the very same products tree and forestry professionals use. These combos provide both effective preventative protection and proven curative treatments for professional proven results.
