I can't identify the pests by your description but I wonder if they are mealybugs? You can do a web search to see photos. If this is not what you're dealing with, collect a few of them in a plastic bag and take them to your local Master Gardener Clinic, cooperative extension office or well staffed nursery for help with identification. Your extension office: Oklahoma County Cooperative Extension Office 930 N. Portland, Oklahoma City, OK 73107 Phone 405-713-1125.
