Spi­der mite

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Growing -

pop­u­la­tions es­ca­late rapidly in hot, dry weather, af­fect­ing both in­door and out­door plants. They suck out plant juices, which be­come weak and stunted, with mot­tled, yel­low leaves. Use a miti­cide, hor­ti­cul­tural oil, in­sec­ti­ci­dal soap, or spray reg­u­larly with cold wa­ter (spi­der mites dis­like cold baths).
