I have no idea what they are....kinda assume scale insects.....but yea i had some too....they got a mosquito like 'tube' they insert(or grow) into the plant....nasty little things left some bad scars after being pulled out

thats it dazed! they leave some ugly scares if you pull them out... i have noticed some of them have a hole in the center... and these don't have their 'tube structure' growing inside the plant...
i was wondering if wasn't it some kind of parsite who just grows in metamorphoses (or whatever it is doing in there) and leave (i think i've read about it somewhere before)...
anyone else???

I get these nasty bastards on lots of plants of mine, you need to gently wash the cacti with a little bit of soap water and wash cloth. they come off pretty easy like that.

I forgot to mention this in my last post but you might want to rinse the cactus with some fresh water after cleaning the parasites off
