I think I have spider mites. Alot of my plants and shrubs are affected with yellowing of the leaves and underneath the leaves on some of them is red fluffy stuff. Is this spider mites and how do I get rid of them? My hibiscus and alot of flowering perrenials are affected. Thanks for the help!

A lot of things may cause yellowing of leaves, and 'red fluffy' doesn't go with a spider mite description. Is there anything else you can tell or show us?

Here is a link that might be useful: spider mites, example, leaf underside of plumeria
