Sounds like spider mites. I hate them and they should all die in a fire - slowly. Make sure to mist under the leaves regularly, they like dry conditions. Some folks prefer misting with a drop or 2 of a 'wetting agent' in the water. d Citrus scented ish soap usually. Some folks report the use of a systemis inscticide such as bayer 2 in 1 (rose fertilizer/insecticide) helps.

Have to say that red Spider Mite is almost impossible to irradicate. It is mainly a problem under glass - but is more unsightly than dangerous - unless you have a very bad infestation. Putting your houseplants outside in good weather in the summer seems to keep the numbers down - change the growing medium when you bring them in for the winter - best solution is the two h s - hygiene and humidity - but watch your pelargoniums with the latter!
