I live in Carmel Valley, San Diego and I have a rosemary plant that has been sitting in my back yard for almost 6 years. The weather has not changed for quite a long time. The soil is a free draining sandy soil. A week ago, the rosemary started flowering. It had only flowered once before four years ago. When I looked closer at the leaves, I found yellow spots on most of them:
The camera makes the color more green but really the whole leaf looks yellower and not healthy. Normally I would wait a few weeks just to see if it would go away, but I also started noticing white fruit-fly sized flying insects around the rosemary. I'm also particularly worried because my parsley had been infested by these insects a few days ago:
Also this insect:
I uprooted the parsley and disposed of it properly and I'm wondering if these are the same insects that are damaging my rosemary. What do you think is the cause of the yellow spots on the rosemary? Should I get rid of those insects and how?
Sorry for the blurry images and thanks for any help.
