Hiya Unknown Infestation Problem Need HELP

I need some identification on whatever these little critters are. I have uploaded several photos in my photo album of the palm and the spray treatment I have been using. These little critters do NOT die. I will try anything to save this plant. Can someone give me some advice on this.

Thanks in advance,

I will help you in your investigation!

The critters are probably spider-mites. You can get rid of them by using old fashioned green-soap, and mixing this about 1/10 with water and then misting this on the plants. But the soap needs to be the old-fashioned, oily kind. Actually, my grandma had to show me this, and after I tried this method I have never had spider-mite problems again.

Come to think of it, they may not have this soap in the US, but here in Norway old ladies have used it to clean their house since the early 19ths century. I'd be happy to send you a bottle if you can pay for shipping.

BTW, the plants in your photo, they look more like a seed-grown species and certainly not like an Apple cultivar. Where did you get them?

How often do you apply this green-soap solution to your plant? Spidermites are a constant threat to all of my plants. I just threw a pepino out, because it was infested.
With kind regards
