Re: aphids and mandevilla

  Small & white sounds like it could be whitefly.  When you shake the vine do
 the insects fly up?  If so, try some yellow sticky traps. >>

Marilyn, do the sticky traps control the white fly population on a continual 
basis?  I have had little trouble white flies usually buying a plant with the 
eggs or larva in place and unseen.  It seems that killing off the adults is 
not too hard but those measures do not  deal with the progeny coming on.

It is too late now but the mandevilla in question should have been sprayed 
before bringing indoors.   This is a practice usually made frantic by some 
frost prediction causing plants to come in before you have preparations made. 

I have trouble with spider mites every winter despite having a special 
glassed room winter garden that has at times,  too much humidity.  In fact, 
were it possible, I would pass a law against spider mites.  All impatiens and 
ivies end up the winter with mites.  They are then cut down to the soil and 
regrown or discarded.  The best mite cures are not usuable indoors so one is 
working with a small arsenal and large amount of angst.

BTW, I keep over fuchsias and the dwarf or smaller geraniums.  What else is 
successful and look good all winter.
