Sad to say that after killing these f^*ke+s, I threw the plant away. Odd thing is I can’t find where they came from. No other plants have them including the 2 that were right next to them. I check my plants everyday but sometimes it’s a couple of days before I get back around to the first 1, so it may have been up to 3 days since I last looked at this plant. It was in the corner of my bookcase with other plants in front of it. All new plants have been isolated and no where near this one. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I find it very odd that no other plants are infected. Anyone know the life cycle of these bugs are have experience with them?

I would use some q-tips or a spray bottle with rubbing alcohol in it.

The best advice I have is: toss your plant, dirt and pot away - like you did! Your plant looks quite infested here... alcohol spraying or swabbing only works on small infestations.
