Some of my petunias have a litte white bug on them. What are they and how can I get rid of them without harming my plants? I have grown petunias every year and I have not seen these little critters before. Please help.

I can't tell from your description whether your petunias have a population of white aphids or white flies. Insecticidal soap will quickly dispatch either pest.
