    What on earth are these?

    I was taking some cuttings of what I believe to be bridal wreath spirea, and every branch seem to be infested with these insects.

    There WERE lots of greasy/ waxy spots on the leaves that I took to be something like aphid honeydew, but hoping it was just morning dew.

    Working up to it. Trying to convince the other interested parties not to go with Neem oil.
