I have a fig tree that is covered in these strange pests. They appear to be live organisms, but they don't move.
What could these be and how can I deal with them?
The brown dots are an advanced infestation of scale. This is not the fig scale which looks pinkish and has an unusual shape but a more common variety. This is a common pest and regardless of the species control is the same. The white dots could be young scale or whitefly attracted by the sticky sap the scale excretes.
