Tomato bugs

My tomato plants have tiny white, I assume bugs all over the leaves, not just on the underside. They are so tiny they almost look like bad dandruff....any ideas on what the heck it is?

RE: Tomato bugs

Sounds like white flies. Try spraying the plants (from above and from below, so you get the underside of the leaves) with a jet of water. Do this once a day for a couple of days. I bet they will clear up.

Tahlequah, OK

PS. I bet if you had posted this on the Tomato growing forum you'd have had an answer in a blink!
