White stuff on Rose of Sharon

Rose of Sharon

Q: We have searched the web to no avail for info on this substance or pest growing on the ends of our Rose of Sharon branches. The white part is very sticky. 

A: It’s either aphids or scale insects. My bet is aphids because they are faster to breed and increase in numbers and start excreting sticky honeydew A good blast of water is usually enough to control them
