Uh Oh I says,

	I'm new at growing chiles and all of my plants are doing
great... some blossoming and
some starting to fruit. Problem though! I found little white ?Larva? on
the top of one of my two surviving Hab plants (frost wiped out the other
two). There are also little browish things that look like mites. Might
they be mites? IF so I plant to use the same suggestions for getting rid
of them. I am also worried about them spreading from plant to plant.
