@LIcenter is correct. Use Neem to get rid of them. Do it quick because they multiply rapidly.
They became such a problem with my raspberries, I finally gave up and yanked them all out. It's amazing how quickly they can suck the life out of a plant.

BTW, Happy birthday Chuck. (y)

And what I find when I get them is that Hard Scale insects follow them. Mealy bugs are a soft scale insect but why the two go together has always baffled me. If you don't get them early your're in trouble.

I guess, but it does not move even when i touch it nor kill it
Looks like mealybugs. I had an ongoing problem with them on my raspberry bushes.

Thats a mealy bug. There are at least 350 varieties of this insect. On the following link it will show a picture of one.http://idtools.org/id/citrus/pests/morphology.php?state[]=type
As I said before, use Neem Oil. Soft scale insects will squish and smear when you smash them. Hard scale insects are very hard, do not move and are attached to the plant. Neem will kill them both. If you don't have neem you can try a strong solution of dish soap although I haven't had much luck with soap...........on anything. some folks use rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip, but Neem is the best. It will take more than one application.
