I was wondering if anyone has come across these pesky critters. I read that they're common, but difficult to get rid of. I'v lost a few plants to this problem and was only to save a few because of daily cleanings. Also, over the summer I left the infected plants outside,sprayed them with bug spray and let the rain wash it away, then continued that regime. With winter here, I brought them in and the mites are back. My huge Gardenia has them now and its become too much to clean, does anyone have advice? Thank you!!
