Spider Mite Control
There are over 1,200 species of spider mite in the world. However, the two-spotted spider mite is the most common spider mite.
Two-spotted spider mites are easily identified by the two "spots" on their back. These mites feed on the underside of leaves causing the stippling damage. In addition, spider mite activity is visible in the tight webs that are formed under leaves and along stems. Spider mites thrive in high heat and low humidity.
