Color: Body is globular, yellowish to greenish and is often marked with darker spots on the back.
Size: Adult mites are small, 1/32 inch (0.4 mm) or less.
Spider mites have tiny mouthparts modified for piercing individual plant cells and removing the contents. This results in tiny yellow or white speckles. When many of these feeding spots occur near each other, the foliage takes on a yellow or bronzed cast. Once the foliage of a plant becomes bronzed, it often drops prematurely.
- Forceful jet of water from a hose (syringing) can knock off spider mites. A regular syringing can keep spider mites under control on most ornamental plants in the landscape.
- When purchasing new plants, carefully inspect the lower leaf surface for any signs of mite activity. New house plants should be quarantined from other plants until you are sure that no mites are present.
