Golden shrimp plant bracts covered in tiny black things. What are they?
I have two new golden shrimp plants in my garden, South Florida, 10A. I notice all the bracts have some kind of tiny black bug or larvae all over them. I have sprayed, mild organic pesticide, more aggressive types, and finally feed it a systemic but nothing stops them from coming back. What could they be?! I do also see tiny flys (not white fly) I suspect are involved.
