Star Jasmine vine new stem problems

Zone 77007 | Anonymous added on August 4, 2018 | Answered

Planted this star jasmine vine less than a week ago and it now has this on the new growth. The nursery it was purchased from says they do not know what this could be. Has anyone seen this before? If you have seen this do you know what it is and how to get rid of it?

It looks a lot like an egg mass but I think you have scale insects. Also read up on another white insect pest, mealybugs.
