Infested juniper foliage looks dingy and unhealthy. Juniper scales pass the winter as fertilized females. Each produces about 40 eggs that hatch over about a 10 to 14-day time frame. The female is larger than the male they are sucking insects and once they find a spot on the host plant them like they stay and secrete a waxy covering that shields them from sprays.
