Default scale insects?

Anyone had trouble with scale insects on their plants? I use riparium planters that are just at the surface of my 29 gal aquarium. I know, I could perhaps do better aesthetically, but the riparium planters are there because I love trying to grow new things in them.

Anyhow, 2 of my plants have scale insects on them. I am looking for suggestions on how to get rid of them. They just keep spreading I think the plants they are on are a palm and a lily.

Here is a pic that shows off the riparium plants fairly well. Don't mind the HOB, it is just temporary while waiting for my new tank to get set up. The african violets seem to absolutely flourish in my tank. The bacopa just got trimmed, otherwise it would look more lush. And many other things are in the experimental stage- waiting to see if they work out.
