I think my lemon tree has a red spider mite infestation.... looks like a dusting of red powder - just that some of it is moving!! I had a quick search on here and it seems that cause could be the plant's too dry but I do water it regularly as it's kept in my conservatory.
So in a 'green' effort to get rid of the little sods, I've just sat it out in the rain to try and wash them off :) is there anything I should to do to get rid of them permanently? Is this what could be causing my recent leaf drop?
I'd really hate to lose the plant as it's fruiting great!
Please help :)
