[NAFEX] Scale on Citrus

I had scale on a myers lemon, and I meticulously removed the scales for 
months before I sprayed it with dormant oil (right after removing every bug 
I could see.)  I haven't seen any scale on that plant since, and it's been 
a couple of years.

have found to get rid of the scale is to take some time each day and go 
over every leaf and stem and remove them by hand.

>I have a couple of kumquats planted in pots that I bring indoors for 
winter and place under lights. They usually flower and produce fruit. This 
year, the plants have been inundated with scale. I've sprayed with 
clove-rosemary oil several times. The oil knocks the infestation back, but 
it reappears soon. Since these plants are indoors, and I'm basically an 
organic gardener, can anyone suggestion another non-toxic battle plan? I've 
already lost one plant to scale, and now several houseplants have scale, 
too.
