Brimblecombe, A.R. (1958) Control trials against red scale on figs. Queensland Journal of Agricultural Science, 15 (4). pp. 215-239.



Control trials accompanied by seasonal life history studies were conducted with red scale (Aonidiella aurantii (Maskell)) on figs in the Sunnybank district during the period August 1949 to May 1952. From these studies white oil is regarded as the only effective insecticide for red scale on figs and two applications 2-3 weeks apart in January are adopted as the standard control.
