Whiteflies on Tomatoes - Knowledgebase Question

Question by Clumpystu

I planted tomatoes this summer for the first time and had great success, no doubt due to the hot, sunny summer we had. However, we now have an infestation of tiny white flying insects that fly up by the hundreds when you touch the plant. There are also teeny black dots on the leaves, perhaps the eggs? What is this insect, is it a pest, and, if so, how do we control them?
