Scale Insect

Description:

Pseudaulacaspis cockerelli? Covering about half the leaves on this bush, with dozens on each leaf. The third photo shows what I think are the eggs. The orange larva you see are the actual insect (I believe females), and the white part is the protective covering made of wax and exuviae of earlier instars

Habitat:

Silverthorn bush (Elaeagnus pungens) in a suburban yard
