Thanks Barry for that Info.

Currently I have been removing the affected plants and burn offsite. I am doing my best to keep the Virus vectored by the mites, supressed with a labled product, and It does a good job for the mites themselves.

The Summer (Hort) oil works on these mites too, but they are most active when it is Hot, and I don't want Phyto issues either.
