    If I'm not mistaken, that looks an awful lot like the thrips that seem to attach themselves to helis and eventually kill the plant. Spray with imidacloprid if you can verify it.

    Sorry, I just never saw them mentioned. Most of what I read was care sheets that mentioned little in the way of pests.
    It will be hard to verify. What time are imid-thingys most active?

    Asid,

    It may or may not be a pest of some kind... but you need to inspect closely with a magnifying glass just to be sure....
    Most heli pest can be addressed with Bayer Dual Acting Rose and Flower Spray

    I GOT IT!
    I have spider mites. Thank you so much Av8tor. I have webs, but no spiders, so it has to be.
