    Hi all, my bay laurel  has a few branches that are overrun with tiny insects. I can’t tell what kind of bug it is. Are these small bugs causing the weird growth on my shrub’s leaves? Pictures attached.IMG_20220611_151750840IMG_20220611_151641148IMG_20220611_152155288IMG_20220611_151905385_HDR

    I tried opening one up (see pic) and there were whitish big ones inside. What are these?

    To me they look like scale insects, have you looked that up?
