ABOVE: The climber uses rope and saddle to safely maneuver around a California sycamore during a pruning operation.
RIGHT: Oak wax scale, Cerococcus quercus, is a sucking insect. This colony was found on a mesa or Engelman oak, Quercus engelmannii. Its primary hosts are scrub oaks (Q. dumosa & Q. berberidifolia). They are about 4 to 4.5 mm in diameter. A scale may be commonly found with a small circular hole in the outer shell indicating it has been parasilized (where a predatory insect has used the scale in its own reproductive cycle). The scale has a minimal affect on its host. Spraying is not recommended as it upsets the natural balance, killing the predator as well as the prey.
