Battle of the bugs-Whitefly? or Mealy bug?

16 years ago

Ok today's bug in my garden looks like white cotton on stems of plants but when you touch it some of it flies away, looks like little white flies of some sort, are these white fly or mealy bugs and what to do about them? They are on everything in my yard and wherever they have been is this downy cottony fluff all over stems and leaves ;( Help!

I had some other pests and have been trying to get Neem sprayed on everything but Neem doesnt seem to affect these things, at least not instantly. They hop off when I spray then hop right back on the plant!
