Green Velvet Boxwods, White Bugs and White Residue on leaves

While watering my annuals today, I noticed a white substance inside my Green Velvet boxwoods. I sprayed the boxwoods and white bugs were flying everywhere? There was also what appeared to be a white powdery substance on the leaves and near the branches. Are these boxwood psyllids, whcih are commong with boxwoods. They flew away, so I did not get a good look at the bug, but they were white and very small, flying everwhere.

Please help. These boxwoods were planted four years ago and have done beautifully as foundation plants facing west.

Thanks to all.
