Help! My banana plant has what I believe is a spider mite infestation! Thousands of tiny bugs all over! Any tips on how to resolve the problem? I also have a major problem with bugs myself. I love my plant babies but I need the bugs gone as quickly and easily as possible.

Many of us have pest issues from time to time here is what I would do.

Do a youtube search and go to the Big box and buy the remedy......
Use the product and relax again.....maybe have an extra shot of Matcha

Good luck....

We use a hard spray of water over the entire plant - generally do it twice to be sure get them all. We do not use chemicals for them (though on rare occasions we will use chemicals). If they reappear, another hard spray (when I say hard spray, we use a standard nozzle at end of hose set to strongest blast and hold it 4 or more feet away - but start much further away as pressure can vary and depends on the nozzle at that location (we have half a dozen different types) (one learns quickly if too close as will punch a hole or shred a leaf. We have circa 65 lb pressure

Do you put anything on the plant or just the two sprays kills all of the mites? Do I need to repot with new soil?
