Dear Forum Members:
Help! I was gone on business travel for a week and came back to find a serious problem with my rooted plumeria. Most of the leaves have small pale yellow "flecks" or spots on them, and seem to be infested with very, very small bugs. The critters are pale gray to white in color, nearly too small to see, and are associated with a fuzzy looking "nest" or web. Are these spider mites? How do you treat them? Since the weather has turned cold, all my plumies are indoors. Can these critters spread to other house plants? I've attached a photo. I really hope someone can help out with advice on how to treat this. It seems to be taking a toll on the health of my one plant with leaves!
