How can I prevent my houseplants from having scales?

I have noticed that my houseplants have scales and am at a loss as what to do to do about it?

Well to prevent scales, you have to spray the plants with a horticultural spray. This will prevent scales in the long run.

Well, sadly to say, all house plants get scales on it. So there is no way to actually prevent this.

First you need to remove the infected plant away from not infected ones. Use cotton balls and alcohol and wipe each leaf. You should see improvement over time.

Make sure you haven't changed anything in the feeding watering regiment then make sure nothing in their surroundings have changed if all else fails call the greenhouse and ask them they should be able to tell you.

It may sound crazy, but use the fluid used to keep christmas trees alive. I've used them on plants it helps plants live longer/keeps them fed.
