Thanks for your support on the grim decision that has to be made. I've lost almost half of my plants but the melies seem to be subsiding. I don't know if its from the relentless torment or the cooler weather on the window sill. I only find the odd one now ....but they are still there. Will they ever leave? Luckly they never spread off the window sills. Everything was washed and treated, replanted and roots trimmed. I'm waiting for spring and hope they will start to grow once again.
