Help! scale insects

I have an ivy plant (not sure which variety) that is infested with scal insects. I've sprayed it with Sevin (an insecticide) but didn't help. I don't want to get rid of the plant because I've had it for a fe years. Any ideas on how to get rid of these things - moonpi ----------------------------------------------------------------------- posted via www.GardenBanter.co.uk
