Scale insects refer to a large group of insects common on ornamental trees, vegetable crops, plants, and shrubs. They belong to the superfamily Coccoidea. Hard or armored scales (family Diaspididae), feeling scales (Eriococcidae), soft scales (family Coccidae), ground pearls, or margarodid scales (family Margarodidae), mealybugs (family Pseudococcidae), and other minor groupings are among the more than 20 scale insect families found worldwide.
