Q.Gardenia Potted Diseases/Pests

Anonymous added on July 31, 2011 | Answered

I have a common Gardenia which lives through winter in a sunroom and summer under a tree where it gets morning light. I have been fighting a pest – black, small pinhead size that collects around the buds and causes them to fall. Below the infected part will be a white tiny (eggs?) residue, again like small pinheads. Have tried Cygon, Raid, soap, Malathion, and copper but this thing keeps coming back. Can you help?
