Spray Brug or not? Keeping the balance between bad and good bugs
I have a brug that was great last year started from a cutting. This year it's not that great with holes in leaves (earwigs?) and now I see dust specks under some leaves which I know likely mean spider mites. Plus it makes sense that that's why the new leaves are not that big or green. But what I also see are orangish/red VERY little bugs under the leaves. These bugs have what I think is yellow on one side of them. Are they larvae of something?
I ask because before I spray the leaves AGAIN with something, I want to make sure that the orange speck bugs I see are not beneficials eating the mites, because if they are, I will just let them keep eating and nature will balance things out!
