Hi Daniel,
I ran across these little fellows this afternoon. Almost gave up on identifying them but I did a search for ”yucca plant bugs” as they were on a yucca plant. Didn’t know their was such a critter but that seems to be what they are. Thanks for all you do and have a great day.

    I also have bugs in my yucca plant but mine looks more like stink bugs. They seem to fill up the plant within every bloom.

    I forgot to add that I live in extreme southern Alabama. About 15 min from the guild of Mexico. I didn’t know if it would help

    I have blackish/brownish bugs, no picture, that are round and very small….can cover a leaf of the Yucca. Since the bugs have gone for the Winter I now have white dead leaves with brownish blackish spots. Can the plant be saved? Do I just remove all the dead leaves which would leave a long huge stalk like trunk? I also haven’t separated my Yucca’s and am assuming this too is causing my problem. HELP!!!
