  • Great photo of the white fuzzy! I think they eat aphids.

    Also, that white plant has some major issues.

  • Yeah, so suggests that it may be Orthezia or something related to that. I’m not finding much information on the net about them, but the pictures I do see make it seem plausible. I’ll bring my hand lens and take a closer look.
