    hallo,

    am finding more and more of these teeny-tiny pesky white spots on my albizzia leaves -- sorry my mob does rubbish photos --- they seem to be feasting on the tender tips --- does anyone know what the critters are and how to get rid? -- am thinking bicarbonate of soda + water to spray the leaves --- tree in flower at the mo, she is lovely i do want to keep her.

    thanks, karamanalbizzia_illness.jpg

    Difficult to say.
    As you say picture a bit blurry, out of focus.
    Try just taking one slightly further away.
    Would be nice to see the flower also.
