During May, 1953, an outbreak of white wax scale was recorded in one orchard at Harvey, specimens being submitted by the local Fruit Fly Inspector (Mr. I. Rennie). This is the first time that white wax scale has been found at Harvey. Although the white wax scale was recorded in the Kalamunda district in 1911 and soon spread to Roleystone and Parkerville, it did not reach the Chittering area until the early 1940's and that district is still only lightly infested.
