    Do you have a strong magnifying glass to have a look at the undersides of the leaves? I think it's worth having a look to see if you can spot anything.

    Er I dunno what folks use.. I use Avid and Talstar for most of my pest problems
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    i believe neem oil should work well, too. spray neem or a safe insecticide on the leaves, or if you have a systemic insecticide, apply to the soil, the plant absorbs it, and then the mites will die.
