Hi Bill

Looks like have an infestation of Scale ...... little flat, sap sucking insect.

The following discussion thread on this site provides a treatment for a different type of scale, but it will be just as effective:
Lilly Pilly Pest - Scale

Also, I have provided another resources about Neem Oil that might be useful.

All the best :)
