What are these white flat oval things? I suspect it's some kind of egg for an insect. They come off pretty easy with a fingernail. Wondering if this is something I should worry about

My first thought was mealybugs: http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=plant+mealy+bugs&qpvt=pl... but if not that, then probably some type of scale insects. Scroll down this page for images: http://galveston.agrilife.org/files/2012/03/Scale-Insects-on...
