Was checking the eggplant this morning to see if the bees were doing their job.  Found this on one of the stems.  When I first saw it there was a tiny insect that was also white.  It was not present when I took the picture.  When I attempted to crush it it hopped away and was gone.  Anyone know what this is?  I have never seen this on any plants before.

It's been very dry for a couple of weeks now so would that be one of the reasons?  I will check other plants, etc.  Like I said, I have never had this before so I am clueless.  Will check here for ways to get rid of this.  Thanks camprn.

I'm thinking I may have whiteflies instead.  I was looking at a picture of whiteflies and it resembled what I saw this morning.  Will get busy tomorrow and get after them.

Look like mealy bugs to me. Treat with a water spray to dislodge them, insecticidal soap or spinosad.

Q-tip and rubbing alcohol and no more problem so far. Keeping an eye on it though.
