How do I get rid of bugs on my plants?

I have some holes in some of my plant and then I have some of them with white stuff on them. What can I use to get rid of these bugs?
Thanks Patsy

    Hi Patsy, I am not sure if this works for all plants but one tip my mother gave me about this happening to my rose bush was to get a empty squirt bottle and fill with a few drops of dish soap and fill with water. Shake it up a little and then spray on your plants. I have also filled my sink up with soapy water and took the bubbles from the top and just put them on the leaves. I hope this helps.

    mix water with a few drops of dish washing liquid in a spray bottle and spritz tops and undersides of leaves. do thes once a day until all bugs are gone

    I concur, just don't do it on a real hot sunny day as the leaves can get covered in film and not be able to breathe, at least in the South.

    You may have aphids. White cottony looking stuff on the leaves. I use a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol to ged rid of them.
