gloomy scale infestation comparison

Two red maple street trees illustrate the impact of a gloomy scale (Melanaspis tenebricosa) infestation. Non-infested is shown at left; infested shown at right. The pest’s common name comes from an infested tree’s “gloomy” appearance. (Photos by Adam G. Dale, Ph.D., originally published in Just et al 2020, Journal of Integrated Pest Management)
