What kind of pests? how to I kill them?

Have sticky leaves on one phalenophsis orchid, black tiny bug? Or scale, it seems like, on underside of leaves. I can clean it off with fingernail, but always comes back. How can I prevent this? I’m keeping this one separated from other orchids. Not happening on adjacent varieties of house plants in window.
