sounds  like red lillie beetle, their offspring cover themselves with their own excrement. i try to be organic, and pick off the beetles. maybe try to spry with a garlic and soap solution.

this is the 3rd year I have had a pyracanta, and this is the first year it has flowered.

i have never pruned it, it is situated in a shady area, beneath a large magnolia, but i gave it a good mulch with manure in spring,

I hate flies..
