Q.little white flies, sticky stuff all over the place

Zone Leonia, NJ 07605 | sgfeltman added on August 6, 2018 | Answered

I have an indoor garden, with grow light. There are tiny white flies all over my 3 mint plants, barely visible unless I bump the table and they all fly upwards. Mostly they stay attached to the bottom of the leaves. They kill the leaves, and there is a clear sticky substance all over some of the plants and on the table, which I have never had before. Even the other plants – parsley, Vietnamese coriander, French thyme – have stick stuff on them. The flies seem to mostly like the mint.

How do I get rid of these flies without killing my precious 3 mint plants?
