  • Aonidiella aurantii

California Red Scale, Aonidiella aurantii, is an armored scale pest and an economic threat to citrus growers globally. The scale damages crops by latching itself onto limbs and sucking the plant’s sap, as well as producing a cosmetic defect in the fruit and depreciating the value of the crop. Though it originated in Southern China, it is currently present in all citrus producing regions around the world.
