This what I mean about whitefly. The picture is zoomed in a bit so they do look bigger than what they are.

Have a read in here or try googling "whitefly" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitefly . I am not sure but I think they drink the sap from your plants. Here's what it said for control: Whitefly control is difficult and complex, as they rapidly gain resistance to chemical pesticides. The USDA recommends "an integrated program that focuses on prevention and relies on cultural and biological control methods when possible." [1] Use of yellow sticky traps to monitor infestations and only selective use of insecticides is advised.

if they are small then dip them in i solution of washing up liquid (just the tops of the plants.

you can get some stuff that is 100% safe to use on edible crops. it is usually some form of plant fats or oils.

basically you want to cover the top and bottoms of the leaves with the stuf that way the little buggers die.

try to have fly papers in the room also, you would be surprised on what i have caught on my papers
