Red Spider Mite

An extremely tiny sap sucking mite with species affecting outdoor/ glasshouse/conservatory plants. Relishing hot/dry conditions. Feeding damage causes affected leaves to become mottled/speckled bronze colour, falling prematurely. On badly infested plants a fine white webbing over the leaves maybe seen. Red Spider Mites breed rapidly under warm conditions with strains of this pest showing resistance to certain pesticides.

Product Solution: Spray with Provado Ultimate Bug Killer aerosol, Natria Bug control, Organic Bug Free. 

Cultural methods: Where possible spray plants, and any hard standing areas in the greenhouse regularly with water to increase humidity as red spider mite are discouraged by humid, damp conditions.
