Hello! I recently discovered what I believe to be an infestation on my pot of hens and chicks. I cannot identify the pest, as I see no bugs on the plant itself. However it looks as if someone dumped sawdust upon spiderwebs. I have had spiders on my plants before, so the webs did not initially concern me, however now the sawdust-looking infestation is quite large. The plant does not appear to be suffering as of now, but we all know how that goes!
I thought perhaps it was a "mealybug" infestation as I had seen a couple of those bugs a month or so ago, however it doesn't look that much like a mealybug infestation as the color is more of a brownish color and I see no physical bugs on the plant. If they are eggs, it must be thousands.
Unfortunately I do not have a picture as I tried to wipe the infestation off of the plants before thinking of posting here. There is not much evidence left (except for the little bits I couldn't reach).
If anyone has any idea what may be the problem I could really use some helps and tips to prevent / get rid of infestations such as this!
