If they are sap suckers a systemic insecticide such as Provado will do it, but do it well before flowering to prevent killing bees.
Those dots could be fungal growth on some deposits left on the leaves, maybe left by pests, difficult to say from this distance.

Neem Oil extract works well as does mild soap solution, see link below for Neem. Soap solution works but you have to hit the little critters to kill them so needs to be done thoroughly and fairly frequently.
