Red Spider Mite
An extremely tiny sap sucking mite with species affecting outdoor/ glasshouse/conservatory plants. Relishing in 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, Organic Bug Free, Natria Bug Control.
Cultural methods: Where possible spray plants and any hard standing area regularly with water to increase humidity and keep the plants moist as damp humid conditions can often discourage these mites.
