I already reported on cottony maple leaf scale crawlers which became
active a couple weeks ago. Now it is time for cottony maple scale. The ovisacs of this scale occur on branches instead of leaves which is an easy way to tell them apart. Cottony maple scale seems to become most abundant on silver maple but I found this one on red maple. We do not have a lot of silver maple this far south. Control is similar to other soft scale recommendations found here.
