|I thought my Plumies were wintering over nicely in the temp greenhouse. All the pudica kept their leaves as well as the orange and pink plumeria. Then I spy Red Spider Mites! Ugh! Yes, there would have been some green Plumeria had it not been for the spider mites! I need to get rid of them NOW! Any hints?|

|Lightly spray with alcohol. That will take care of them. Also neem oil or dish soap.|

|I spray mine with water to mist the plants. Sometimes, I wipe the underside of the leaves with wet paper towels. It helps disrupt the egg production but doesn't, really kill the spider mites. Usually, when the weather warms up, and plants are outside the spider mites miraculously disappears.|
