    I have no idea what these small white creatures are. There were hundreds of them on the end twigs of a couple of small Acacias. Ants and the larvae of Cryptolaemus montrouzieri, the aphid-eating ladybird, were feeding on what was presumably honeydew. Each was about 3 mm long. Wattle ticks were feeding on the same plant.
