Spider mites (???) on carnosa
Hi All - I'm beginning to bring in my plants for the winter, and noticed on the underside of the leaves on my carnosa these tiny white insects. Are these the spider mites I've been reading about? I thought they were red....but I didn't know if they came in white as well.
The good news - my carnosa was by itself outside, and not clumped together with my other plants that I bring in, so I don't think they are affected.
The bad news - I need to move this plant in within the next couple of weeks, because our temps will start getting too cold at night.
Any suggestions on how to get rid of them? I would rather not use chemicals if possible, because I have an almost 4-year old, 2 dogs, and 2 cats. Thanks!!
