Pests on japanese holly


I have a couple of japanese holly shrubs in the garden that have been infested with pests in the last week. They are very small black things that are just about visible to the eye.

Any help on what they are and how to get rid of them wpild be appreciated

    Could be some kind of scale insect perhaps.

    Are they actually doing any harm though?
    Ilex is pretty trouble free, although the foliage in your pic looks a bit chlorotic, so you may need to address that.
    Are they in pots, and have they had any fresh soil each year?
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
