I don't believe that is BBA. Black Brush literally looks like the end of a small paint brush. It usually starts at the edges of a plant leaf. I've seen BBA cover plants before. But when BBA covers a...

Go to Popeyes and get an order of fried shrimp. Put one in your pocket and when the first one asks, pull the fried shrimp out and take a bite. Say, "Sure! They're on the menu every Friday night!"

That's a few I hadn't considered. Been trying to burn it with H2O2 from a small syringe. Some go bubblemania and some look as though there's nothing happening.
