THE red scale (Aonidiella aurantii Masc.) is widely distributed throughout the world but tends to be a serious pest in those countries with semi-arid climates such as California, South Africa, Palestine and Australia.
The home of the pest is probably China, but it has been known in Australia for over 70 years and it was from the continent that it was introduced into North America.
