Yes, it does. Woolly aphids.

These things don't *usually* cause much damage but you can spot treat where the aphids are most abundant using an insecticidal soap or something like Neem oil.

Thankyou! Group hug I did spray Neem oil on a few plants, and it worked on about 1/2...so I wasn't sure if it was the right thing to do. I guess they need a few more treatments

I tip my hat to you. Hope it all works out for you. Though, like I said, they usually don't cause that much damage, but they can certainly be a bit unsightly.

I usually don't care too much about these things, but I wanted to give some away...

If those are aphids, you should be able to just wash them off the plants you want to give away.

Oh come on! Snake are cute. I rescued this one today. It tried to crawl through a hole in an empty flowers pot and got stuck.
