Carolyn,

I am not sure which insect you have as it could be a mealybug, aphid, scale or whitefly. As a good low toxicity general approach I suggest you try neem oil and direct the sprays upward from underneath the plant's foliage to get complete coverage of the insects.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
