These are all over one of my yuccas at the back of the property.
How can I get rid of them without harming all of the spiny lizards that have lived back there even before I planted the yuccas

I think insectcidal soap would be safe to remove the bugs and not harm the lizards.

Jean , thank you. I checked and checked this forum and didn't see anything and gave up. Thanks again
I finally mixed some Joy dish soap with water and sprayed and the bugs disappeared and the new growth looks healthy

Thank You!
