This really bugs me...

Post  chappy56 on Sun Mar 27, 2011 3:00 am

Anyone have an idea what this may be?
I just re-potted this tree a week ago and didn't see this then.
Any suggestions as to treatment would be appreciated too.
thanks

They are scale insects. Since your tree has not leafed out, you can use a dormant spray that is listed for scale. If you see them on a tree with leaves, use Bayer's Imidacloprid.

Thanks all. I removed them shortly after taking the picture.
I was mostly curious about preventing them.
What is the long term affect on a tree if they go unchecked?

Those look like Katydid eggs to me.

Yup, go here. http://bugguide.net/node/view/486658/bgimage
However, if you sprayed the tree, it wouldn't do any harm, since katydids are herbivorous. They might take a nibble of your bonsai on occasion.
