Present in the County Scales protect insects Disease follows scale after heavy infestation 25% are supposed to live after an attack… Urban options do exist
Native, population booms every 10 years We were overdue for a large boom in 2010 and we got it for 2 years! Population is hardly noticeable now.

Invasive shrub LOTS of berries Nitrogen fixer Stump applicator with broadleaf herbicide can be done anytime of the year except spring, its extremely effective.
