What is the best way to rid my variegated scheff of scales?


I have had the scheff for about 4-5 years and it continues to have that sticky "honey dew" residue on the leaves. I have cleansed carefully with a mild soapy water by hand but it just continues. Is there a way to clean it without have to use pesticides?
