These are a group of tiny sap-sucking insects which look like hard white, yellow, red or brown blisters on LEAVES and stems.

They attach themselves via a fluffy, sticky white mass. Removal using a cotton bud soaked in methylated spirits is effective for small infestations but for larger quantities application of a SYSTEMIC INSECTICIDE is the best solution.
