Wikipedia Abstract

Aonidiella aurantii or red scale is an armoured scale insect and a major pest of citrus. It is thought to be a native of South China but has been widely dispersed by the agency of man through the movement of infected plant material. In the USA it is known as California red scale. It was first found in California between 1868 and 1875, apparently brought there on planting material imported from Australia.
