My dessert rose has these web like clumps all over it and I can't figure what it is or how to kill it.

I am in south Florida. There are little balls of spider web looking things on many of the ends of each branch. Here is a closeup.

They are gooey.
Thank You!

I have been searching for a really long time and right after I made this post I think I figured it's mealybugs.

Anyone agree?
