How Do I Know if I Have Red Spider Mite?
Spider Mite are really small insects who grow up to around 1mm in size. Using a magnifying loupe will help you to see them a little clearer. With a smart phone, you can see this with our Phone Scope.
The first signs of a spider mite infection is leaf damage, a fine pale mottling on the upper leaf surface. The underside of the leaves have many tiny yellowish green mites and white cast skins and egg shells.
As the infection progresses, the leaves will begin to look mottled between the leaf veins and the leaves will start to become dehydrated and curl. As the infestation progresses, you will begin to see fine webbing starting to cover your plants.
Hang one or two sachets per plant on stems, in shade towards the bottom of the plant. Do not open or rip the sachet.
