Snapdragon Leaves are being eaten – need advice!

This is a copy of a message I have posted on Growing from Seeds Forum on GardenWeb.

Three days ago I have noticed white spots on some top leafs of my repotted snapdragon seedlings.  The spots grew every day so I have snipped the tops. They were supposed to be snipped anyway, so no damage there. I have put the leaves under stereoscope and took some shots with my point-and-shoot camera and to my surprise it does show some detail.
Question: what can I use to stop the pests from spreading and will horticultural oil spray or applied with q-tips kill the mites or whatever is eating my plants.
I need help, I don’t want to loose them!!!!

View through stereoscope.
