I found this on my gardenias in my birdroom today and I want to google it to see if I treated it properly. I do not know the name so I can not look it up.
Can anyone help me please?

Thank you, that is what I thought it was, but I wanted a specific name and that is almost impossible to find.
Either way after doing some research I find I have treated them accordingly and now I must just keep an eye open to see if they are gone for good. Plus treat the soil. I brought these in on a plant from a very well known supplier and I am really disappointed. Yet it is understandable...they are like mealy bugs, just seem to appear.
