Signs of viruses

Dear all, 

This is a subject I recall was discussed a while back.
 I have a garden bed with a Hippeastrum 'Apple
Blossom' and 'San Antonio Rose' growing in it; both
have lightly to heavily-mottled leaves that appear
virused to me.  However, I had a problem with mites
discoloring some Arum and Hymenocallis leaves earlier
and I was wondering if yellow mottling could be caused
by insect damage?  The 'Apple Blossom' was purchased
locally and the 'San Antonio Rose' was ordered through
a reputable mail-order nursery in Texas.  Does anyone
have experience eyeballing the infected from the
merely infested?  Truth be told, almost every
Hippeastrum I've grown has had this discoloration.
