Red Spider Mites

Red spider mites are very small and feed on garden plants and ornamental trees.  You probably will not see the mites but you will notice the webbing that accompanies them. The best control is beneficial insects such as green lacewings.  Controls also include spraying Garrett Juice plus garlic and extra seaweed.  Strong blasts of water or soapy water are good for small infestations.  Predatory mites are also effective.
