Preventing Shrub Damage from Spider Mites
Many species of the Spider Mite attack trees, shrubs or plants indoors and outdoors. They can be very destructive. They live in colonies and tend tobe grouped together on the undersides of leaves. You can tell if you’ve got a Spider Mite problem by analyzing the display of your leaves. If you see small piercings and some leaves turning yellow, this is a cause for distress.
They are a cause for alarm during the warmer months once they’re eggs begin to hatch. In the winter months they hibernate. You’ll also be able to spot them by seeing their webbing. Once a leave as been sucked completely full, it will turn yellow, they’ll drop off and move onto the next leaf. We encourage the usage of chemical pesticides to get rid of Spider Mites. We use them ourselves and they do a fine job at eradicating existing populations especially in Greenhouses.
