Any chance you can post a picture? What kind of plant is it? Do you know the name?

Maybe Whiteflys? I don't know if they are that far north, but Giant whitefly is awful here. They leave long webs that can smother a plant.

Hi & welcome! Could be spider mites. Is it inside or outside? Potted or in ground? Are you able to add a pic? Your location could be a factor, if you'd like to include where you are.

Hello and welcome. Yes, we really need to know where you are to determine what pests you might have. Please complete your personal profile.

It's most likely spider mites, but a picture will help us to tell for sure.

Give your plant a thorough hosing off, or if indoors, put it in the shower and spray it briskly with lukewarm water. Not cold! Be sure to turn it around and wash from all angles. Also spray up under the leaves a bit if you can. If you do this regularly, it will keep the spider mites at bay pretty well.
