Camellia Plants

I have a red camellia and it's infested with something. Whatever it is, it's all over the back of the leaves. Now what is it and how do I treat it??? I thought about cutting it down a lot, cause like I said, it's covered with whatever it's called. Please help, Thanks.

It sounds like you have either aphids, mealybugs or scale. These pests commonly appear on the back of the leaves.

They are all treated the same way. Treat the plant with a pesticide. I personally like to use neem oil. This article has more on neem oil:
