Hi berhodes125

Do you have a photo you can upload here? This will help to see how much of an infestation
your Jade plant has.

Is there large clusters of cotton like looking fluff ...and or any problems with the plant at all? (i.e., leaves wilting,
yellowing or leaf drop).

Thanks

If you want the easy way out use insecticidal soap, its easily applied by spraying once weeklyto keep them from coming back, also combine this method with rubbing the leaves and stems that are evidently covered with bugs. Sometimes jade plants exude salts on their leaves and you may be confused provided you show a photo.
