Answer: Mites leave behind some tell-tale webbing, so look closely at the undersides of the leaves and where the leaves join the stems to see if you find webbing. Also, mites are sucking pests that leave a silvery-looking stippling on the upper sides of the leaves they attack. They don't generally feed mid-stem. But, if your plants do have mites, you can try to suffocate them with a slurry of buttermilk and flour, sprayed on the plants and left to dry. Wash the residue off the next morning and the dead mites will be washed off as well. Hope this helps you solve your problem!
