I have kept my Christmas Poinsetta outside (live in Texas)since last Christmas when I got it and it is thriving! Recently I have seen tiny white bugs on it and don't know if it will damage my plant and if so, how do I get rid of them. Thanks!

I'm not sure what type of bug has infested your plant, but Neem Oil is a good treatment.
