Debra,

It is difficult to know for sure without seeing the insects and the proper identification is important in providing the proper control. My best guess is that you have mealybugs on the magnolia tree.

I suggest you take a sample of the insects to your County Extension Office for identification, and if necessary, control recommendations.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
