Small white flies on bell pepper plants

I've been doing well so far regarding my bell pepper plants but I noticed a new potential pest. Underneath the leaves I'm noticing more and more tiny white flies that gather together in small groups and they leave a white powdery substance where they stay on the leaf.

Any suggestions?

Francis,

is there also sooty mold on the leaves? A sure sign of white flies. Try Neem Oil. Spray both the top and bottom of the leaves.

Good luck

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. ~Author Unknown
