If they are white flies however, you need to get rid of those fuckers ASAP or they WILL ruin your entire crop. They are highly destructive and can be ridden with either diatomaceous earth or - better yet, you can buy a species of ladybugs known as Delphastus pusillus, which specifically preys on whiteflies. You can get these at any hydro store. The D. pusillus is your best bet if your ladies are flowering, as they won't hurt the bud or plant, just the whiteflies. Hope this helps and let us know how your grow goes.

Seal it up with a can of expanding polyurethane foam. Then use a garden sprayer and go “nuclear” on all the exterior shrubbery with the best spray insecticide you can buy. “Now here's the bad news”. The only real cure for a white fly infestation in a grow room is clear it out and start from scratch.
Pull up your carpet, scour the room and blast it from top to bottom with insecticide. Give all your equipment a good cleaning and blasting as well. Also make sure to cook all your potting soil in an oven to kill all eggs and larvae when you replant.
Then finally, check your air intake because the best place for it is high up on your roof. Climb up in your attic, disconnect your bathroom vent pipe and run your air intake through that. A lower your air intake the greater your potential for sucking flying insects in.
