Pests on my Ponderosa Pine






I’m posting pictures of little black, I’m thinking Adelgid🤷‍♂️? Can someone help and suggest remedies?

They look like scale to me.

From what I read dormant oils and insecticidal soaps are recommended.

I agree, looks like scale to me also. Dormant oil will probably take care of them. If they return during the growing season a systemic insecticide would take them out.
