Olive tree help please

I have had this olive tree for about 12years. I have paid it little attention until today when I repotted it as the old pot was split. I noticed a few patches of black at some of the branch junctions. On a closer look they look like tiny eggs. Is this something to be worried about? Any advice is appreciated.

    They might be scale insects.

    I get these on my olive trees - I don’t know what they are, but I just rub them off when I see them. They don’t seem to affect the trees as far as I’ve noticed.
  • Thanks Cebe - I’ll do the same then
