Calamondin Orange with scale insects

2 months ago

I have a large potted Calamondin orange, that is nearly 60 years old. I noticed that it did not seem to be as healthy as it was. The leaves are a little droopy and dry. I examined it and found that it has scale. I found a recommendation for neem oil as an organic treatment, but I want to check with an expert before I use. This orange was given to my mother by my aunt in Florida many decades ago, and has been in my life as long as I can remember. I really want to keep it healthy. Is this the best treatment? Could it harm the tree?
