Are Mealybugs harmful?

Well, just discovered that there was a decent sized culture of mealybugs living on the back leaves and stems of Gizmo's pothos plant. I chopped off the parts that had them but I'm sure I may have missed a few. I want to know if they are threatening to a chameleons health or if I shouldn't be worried, because I have no clue how long they've been there for since I just discovered it today at the back of his enclosure where I can't really access.
Thanks guys,
What are mealybugs if you don't mind me asking travel.are those the little lads that come in the boxes with crickets etc that eat the poop
