sound to me like scale insect, spray with a bug killer, or if you are organic scrape of with a stick or something similar and wash with soapy water.

Grayish or pinkish "woodlice"? In thick, wooly, sticky, white "cobwebs"? If so, it sounds like mealybugs. Just use a good insectide for aphids, but mixed with a surfactant, such as dish soap, to get past the "cobwebs". Hope this helps.
