What are these?


What are these on a young Virginia crepper and what is the best way to get rid of them?

Thanks in advance

    That does not look quite like a  Virgina creeper leaf to me unless there are other varities The leaves of mine are not shiny at all,

    "Parthenocissus quinquefolia" is mine and the leaves are soft. There are often difficulties with names of differeny varieties of plants which is why we really need to use the official latin names.

    Quite so IAW. Parthenocissus also covers Boston Ivy - it's tricuspidata. Tri - three - for the shape of it's leaves,  Quinqufolia - five, for the shape of the Virginia creeper foliage. image

    That doesn't look like V. creeper to me either, but we need a better pic of the whole plant. I'd also wipe  the insects/ eggs off as a method of removal, but it's very hard to tell what those are as the pic isn't clear. A healthy plant will shrug off a small infestation of anything anyway  image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
