Hello - One of my bushes has been taken over by this white bug or... not sure what it is...within a week! It's entirely covering this huge bush, on the leaves, the branches, it's all over it. I have tried spraying it with water and aphid killer, it's not working. They are white, don't fly....don't move but the bush is starting to die.

Looks like scale insects., probably Euonymus scale. Spray both sides of the leaves and stems with Neem Oil every 5-7 days.

Wow - thanks Chuck. I have been all over sites trying to figure out what this is and that's exactly what it is! Thank you so very much for your help!
