Hi, I'm new here, I hope I'm doing this right. Does anyone know what these fuzzy things are and how to get rid of them? They're dome- shaped and attached to the undersides of my hibiscus leaves, it's hard to detach them because they have some sticky cottony stuff as adhesive. The next picture is what it looked like when I squashed it, there are yellowish grainy stuff, i dont know if they're eggs. The hibiscus is not sick ( for now ) as you can see on the photo but they might be in a few weeks? I tried spraying soapy water but it didn't work. Thanks in advance!

This is what it looked like after I squashed it.

Well, I can tell you that those are some type of scale insect.

This is the hibiscus plant, so far so good. But many of the undersides of the leaves have those fuzzy stuff. Btw, I'm sorry I don't know how to post pictures in one go, so I had to do it on separate postings. Thanks.

Thank you! I'll try to look it up in the Bug Guide website.
