I am currently dabbling with gardening (Durban, South Africa) and came across a strange substance on my chilli plant.

Can you please advise what it could be and how I should treat it.

Please see image attached.

Much appreciated.

Its an insect. I think scale. Dabbing them off with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol works best.
