Cliff Dodd refered to the use of Cygon in knocking out scale on Nepenthes:

It is a very effective pesticide, and does a great job on lots of critters,
but can have nasty effects on people if it gets in contact with skin, as I
know from sad experience. A small amount of wind drift caught me in the
face and gave me a great set of leaking blisters that lasted for about two

Moral of the story: Use it, but be very careful.
