    help with pests

    hi all

    For the last 6 month i have been losing plant after plant,I had bad infestation of snails in my terrarium
    (seem like one of the pots i grown outside carried a few snails,once i moved the plant inside my
    terrarium they multiplied exponentially untill i saw them in every single pot).
    I have tried killing them with Metaldehyde but the infestation was 2 bad,so i repotted all my collection.
    I was still losing plants,so I have treated the plants with CONFIDUR , also i replaced my 250 W MH with 400Recently i have learned that after treating for aphids i have to treat against mites.
    I dont see snails anymore in my plants ,I cant see any pests on my plants even with magnifying glass,
    but i see damage on new leafs, guessing i have mites problem.
    I am not sure if i have spider mites or rust mites(cant see any webs ).
    here is a few pic ,the white spots are from treatment for rust mites.
    any help will be appreciated
