I have seen some white fuzzies on my flowers, garden veggies, and gardenia shrubs. When I go to clean it off, critters spring off. Are these bad for the plants and,if so, how do I get rid of them? Thanks for your help.

Sounds like whiteflies and while they can do some damage, they are hard to control because they fly away when disturbed. Insecticidal soap sprays will kill them on contact. The key is contact. Try spraying early in the morning or at dusk when they are at rest. Good luck with your project!
