Answer: Rhubarb is usually more or less pest free, and based on your description I'm not sure exactly what those are. You might try rubbing them off by hand, or washing them off with a firm spray from the garden hose. If that doesn't work, you might wish to take a sample to your County Extension for a positive identification and suggested control, if any. Their telephone number in St. Lawrence County is 379-9192.
