scale insects

Yuk, been picking off scale insects (quite big black ones that kind of crack/squish) from my potted olive tree. Where do they come from to get there in the first they crawl? fly? What do baby scale look like? Hadn't picked any off for a couple of weeks (last I looked, I'd got them all) yet some of these just now were quite big, like they'd been there a while. I kind of flicked them away from me, can they make it back to the tree over gravel, half squished???!
