Gardenia pest

Romina-77October 20, 2013

Hello, it's my first time using this forum. I bought a gardenia last summer an I have noticed a few weeks ago it start looking sick, some of the leaves are brown (and dry) and in the green leaves the plant is having some kind of pest (I am attaching a photo) any idea about what it could be?
Any advice would be really appreciated
Thanks!
