tiny little white bugs on my peppers


I noticed this morning that I've got tiny white bugs on my peppers and chilli plants (on an inside window sill).

Does anyone know what they might be? They are TINY - no more than a couple of millimetres. Any ideas on how to get rid of them?

To be honest I'm on the verge of picking the peppers and chillis anyway (although not all the chillis are red yet).

Gah - wish I knew more about this growing things malarky.

    Hi, if they look abit furry/fluffy they could be meely bugs, i have had them on indoor plants before, google them and compare pics. If they turn out to be meely bugs then you must spray them as the bugs will kill off your plant and spread to other plants.

    I'll pick the fruits, and spray the plants.
