I did some more research about the bugs that are on one of my plants, and discovered that they are called white flys. Most of the readings indicate that they're usually found in green houses in so cal, but can be found on outside plants in more temprate climates. They feed off the sap of their host plant, and if are unchecked can kill the plant. The flies will usually be found under the leafs, and will leave a gloosy look at points that they have fead off of. I've read that there are some organic controls that will keep them at bay, and that an easy way to kill them is w/ soapy water in a spray bottle. Has anyone had any luck getting rid of these punks? I'm going to try the dish soap, and will report back with my findings.
