so i had a few days of crazy heat here and it was badly timed with my laziness in which i had stopped my lavender FPE regimen.
had a little mite buffet on two of my lowest branches (the ones in the front of the cab strapped to the floor).
so since then i've gotten in two neem applications and three lavender (over about a week and a half). seems to have halted them, but these branches had the little bodies all over them so i cleared them out for peace of mind.
i won't be strapping things to the floor or gettin lazy on my pest control anymore.
