Hey guys, please if anyone can help me ID these bugs or whatever they are and how to get rid of them, I believe they are the cause for the deformed tubes?

they look like eggs of some sort, maybe aphids? spraying with neem oil ussualy removes most pests, that 3 in 1 thing that many people use also works quite well.

Bioadvanced 3 in 1. It is a topical insecticide, miticide, and fungicide. It used to be sold in ready to use spray bottles, but now you have to buy it in concentrate.

You can definitely find it online, but it may be easier to just get it from the hardware store.
Good luck.

Aphids do not lay eggs, they give live birth!!!:

But those do look like aphids, which are very easy to get rid of. Pretty much any insecticide I've used will get rid of them.

Could not find that 3in1 stuff anywhere, i live in spain maybe thats why.

I asked around and someone told me to try spraying plant with water and fairy washing up liquid. And it worked. 😂 just 3-4 light sprays, one on monday and one on wednesday. Lets see if they come back or not.

Thanks
