Just when you thought everything is OK, it comes when you least expect it.

Is it ok for me to use neem oil?
I have some 100% cold pressed neem oil that I can mix with some water and soap to spray.

Personally at this time of year I would just remove the affected leaves and give the plant a good wash; then keep an eye out for them in the future.

Yeah, that sounds like a better idea. But still need to protect the ones with the inflos
