During our COVID-19 isolation over the past months in Blairsville, GA, my wonderful wife has found some joy in tending to her African violets – she has probably 7 – 8 plants that have been thriving under her daily attention.  However, today she was quite distraught to discover two different tiny insects on almost all of her plants.  The black ones are approximately one millimeter or less in length, the white wooly one is perhaps one-half millimeter or less in length.  She is very upset. Help!
