    Well, I just sprayed the infected area with Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer for Gardens.* Every bug that was mentioned should be killed by this stuff.* I will repeat an application in a week and hope for the best.* Thanks everyone.

    Ray, I'm sorry I haven't gotten back to you, but between my animal rescue activities and packing to go away, I just haven't been able to give this the time it needs.** :?

    I think the white residue could be what is left of some pest, possibly mealy bugs or scale insects.* The pirate bug probably ate them and you see the remains.

    I'm glad you found a spray that will work for you, but I probably would have suggested an insecticidal soap or an organic horticultural oil.

    Thanrose, thank you so much for helping out here.* Your suggestions* and knowledge are always welcome!

    I will return about the 29th of May.

    Take care,
    Newt
