:unsure:
Hello!
So I recently purchased a green tea tree bonsai and have been enjoying its presence ever since I got it. Today I found some black (egg looking ) things on my trees branches and leaves.. I also found some spider looking insects on the leaves along with a sticky substance on the leaves. I have no idea what this is or how to treat my bonsai, but I am determined to figure this out. Any help is appreciated.
I will link some photos of what I am dealing with.

Best,

Tomas

Buy general insecticide. Use as per instructions on the package. Looks like aphids to me

And I'm going to say it's thrips, like you did last time.
Same question, same answers by the way: this didn't occur overnight.

Hi, does anyone know what are these little white pugs? Also why they appear and how to get rid of them? There is quite few of them in the soil and they are fast movers. I only had my bonsai for few months. I could not find any info about these bugs from other forums



. I will add 2 pictures. Thank you in advance!
