Time to start the process here. Starts with pulling the taro plants fro

the pond and putting them in a plastic tent with a no pest strip....
I'm half tempted to cut all them down.... I may have to give this some

Taros are horrible for mites. I use a systemic since nothing in the
ponds eat them. Lowes and Home Depot sell systemic insecticides.
