Oregano Pest or Disease?

PaulChondoNovember 20, 2011

I have had a problem of aphids attacking my cilantro, green onions, and parsley. I have been trying to be more active in my garden so that I can get rid of the problems in my garden. Recently I found these black specs on the underside of my oregano leaves. Does anyone recognize these specs and can you tell me if these are aphids eggs and how I should go about getting rid of them so that I can get rid of these aphids! Thank you.

They look like spidermites. Very very very hard to get rid of.
