cotton swabs soaked in rubbing alcohol and rub off each bug put in container with rubbing alcohol to kill.
Use a cotton bud dipped in nail varnish remover and dab on the scales!
If its scale you may want to treat the critters they re a serious pest.
Please also remember to utilize your local cooperative extension office for any gardening, garden pest ID and weed Id and remediation problems. These offices are manned by volunteer master gardeners on site there waiting to answer the communities questions that know your local situation quite well.
Master gardeners are required to volunteer back designated hours ( plus continuing education) each year to maintain MG certification -this community outreach and education is their goal. If the MG cant answer your question on the spot—-they often send out specimens to the local universities my office utilizes Virginia Tech for plant, insect, or disease identification.
