Default Scale on paphiopedilum..I think.

So i've noticed these brownish yellow raised spots on the upper side of the leaves of my Paphiopedilum, not a lot. I notice them every so often. I read looked around and I do believe they are scale, however there are only every one or two of these waxy spots at a time, I see no crawlers, and no males. Ive had this plant for a few months and I remember seeing them on it before. Whenever I see them I wipe them off the leaves.

I tried taking a photo but it wont focus.

How can I get rid of them? So far I've been wiping the one or two I find every once in a while, they come off very easily.

Imidacloprid or Thiacloprid is the way to go. Look for gardening products with these ingredients.
