Spore Forming Parasite on Mint Herb

Spore Forming Parasite on Mint Herb
Posted by Kyle from Philippines on 2009-09-28 09:27:00

I've been having problems with my mint, there has been a frequent infestation of these thick brown hair-like things that clump up together and grow on the stems and leaves of the mint, when shaken these things release brown dusty residue and also makes the soil sticky and webby. At first i had thought this was a one time parasitic thing but after a few weeks it kept comming back. What is this? And how to do I prevent this from happening again?
