Hi....I have a small fig tree. It was outside initially, but I couldn't decide where to put it where it would withstand the cold over winter, so I brought it into the conservatory. When it was outside, the leaves dropped of in autumn, but after I brought it in the leaves grew back.
There are 3 branches, 2 are fine with healthy leaves, but the 3rd branch obviously has some kind of pest problem. The leaves are grey areound the edges and slightly mottled, eventually they curl up and drop off. I can see very fine webs from the leaves to the branch and loads of really tiny insects in the webs.
Does anyone know what they are and how to deal with them? Many thanks.
