I had a huge issue with this plant last winter. I even broke down and put sevin dust on it. I put it outside as soon as it was warm enough and it's been outside for months. I just brought it back in and....same problem.

Any idea what this problem is?

Pic quality is poor but it's little white egg thingies. I've never seen any actual bugs though.

Are you sure it's not a form of blight aphids? I can't see well enough, but looks like beech blight aphids do.....

They look more like tiny water droplets or clear perfectly round eggs. They make the leaves shrivel.

Have you tried spraying them with soapy water?

That was my most recent adventure, yeah. There are still a few on it. I've been washing them off whenever I see them.
