Best Answer

Mites on plants: Wipe them down with diluted alcohol once a week. Mites hate moisture, don't allow plants to stay dry all the time, it's real difficult to kill all of them but you can control them. I controled them on African violets by misting with tepid water twice a day, also Neem oil is very good because it smuthers the tiny mites. New ones hatch out in 5 to 10 days so you'll need to continue this until they are controled. Spray with neem oil every five days. You can purchase Neem II by Green Light from hardware store or online. Or purchase 100% Neem oil online, a Organic supplier. You can also, wash you plant off in the sink with a fairly strong stream of water for the first treatment.

Cats can get ear mites from other cats who have them, or plants that have ear mites on it. But most cats who get ear mites are usually outdoor cats. Other cats can give your cat ear mites because the those little annoying buggers are very contagious. Or if you have a cat and they play around plants, they could catch it if that plant had ear mites on it.
