Put predatory mites on plant 3 weeks ago and now my poor plumeria looks worse than ever and over run with mites.
All suggestions welcome.

If you can just rinse it off thoroughly with water, either in the sink with the sprayer, or in the shower that will help a lot. Use tepid, not cold water. Rinse tops and undersides of the leaves, all the stems, and the soil surface, plus the pot, too.

Do this once a week or so, and the mites will stay away. Here, once the rainy season kicks in we never see a mite until autumn.

The reason it's so hard to lose weight when you get up in age is because your body and your fat have become good friends.
