Notes:

My tulip magnolia is budding but I found three of these pea sized white lumps on the stems near buds on the stems. When I poked them off the stem was red underneath where it was attached. The first picture is the underside of it. Can you tell me what this is.

    Maybe the female Indian wax scale (Ceroplastes ceriferus)? Check it out and see if you have a match. Best wishes!
