Ask The Plant Expert:
What are these white spots on my eleagnus? Are these harmful and how do I get rid of them. Thanks!!

What you have is an infestation of an insect called scale. You will need an insecticide to get rid of it. I recommend Malathion. Your local garden center & nursery may have an insecticide specifically for scale. Whether you use Malathion or another insecticide be sure to follow the directions for eliminating scale.
Hope this information was helpful.
