The most common pests you see on elephant ears are spider mites which love the texture of the elephant ear leaf, especially if you have it in a room where the air is very dry. To get rid of the mites, try rinsing the plant thoroughly with a good blast of water, or following the label directions, treat with a specific miticide.
