● Scale: These are bugs that dwell mostly on tree branches and twigs. Scale bugs feed on the sap found in twigs and branches. They’re usually flat and round on the branches with either a hard or soft waxy covering. This covering acts as camouflage for them.
● Aphid: These bugs are much smaller and prefer the sap on leaves as opposed to branches. They will leave behind a sooty mold and sticky honeydew. Aphids reproduce very quickly, and when they do, it’s a lot of new offspring.
