I can't be sure but I suspect you may be seeing either mealybugs or some type of scale insects. I suggest you take a sample to your Parish Extension Office and see if they can identify the problem and if necessary prescribe an appropriate remedy. If it is scale the remedy will likely be a summer or horticultural oil.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
