You can dip the zoa and it should kill what ever is on it. Look up zoa pox, nudibranch, sundail snails and zoathid spiders usually a dip will take care of the problem I use Lugol's. Remember if you have any adult pests chances are you have eggs someplace and most dips only kill adults.

As far as I know there is no way. At a fragging demonstration he said to take them off and control the adults with dipping and manual removal.
