Found these white dots on my rom a tomatoes and jalpeno stems...any clue what it is and what the cause is?
Any chance of a better image? It's awfully fuzzy and difficult to tell with certainty which insect this might be. Perhaps one of the cottony scale insects, maybe a woolly aphid?
what difference does it make.. wipe them off ..
use a tissue if you dont want bugs smeared on your fingers ...
learning what they are is good... but to be honest... they aint natural ... so i would get rid of them... and never learn the name ...
and that is why i am not a bug .. nor weed naming expert ...
Here is a pick of jalpeno with them..
So yall think that it is actually a bug and not mold...interesting. .I thought it was mold so I cut off the branch and threw it out
Why not just throw the whole plant away?
Ever heard the old adage, "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water"?
