Garden Pests

Just take your eyes off the plants for a few days and something will move in. I don't know what these are but there are hundreds of them on the potted lime tree. My best guess is scale. Can anyone corroborate my guess?
This is Euonymus scale.

I'm going to prune back the shrub, destroy the trimmings and spray. I love this chain link fence climber. It hides the heat pump from view.

Even though these caterpillars destroy the plants they eat, they are allowed to grow as fat as they can before the winter comes. Butterflies have free range here.
Then, there are the garden pests that roam freely from our neighbors' yards.

Yes, this is scale, sorry for your plants.
