(Delivered direct from supplier between 10-14 days)
Feed on soft fleshy-leaved plants causing speckling and discolouration, ultimately causing leaf drop. Red spider mites are quite slow moving, normally very light in colour with two distinct dark spots on either side of their body. They only go red when they are over-wintering. They feed on virtually all plants under protection, and outdoors soft fruit, soft leaved vegetables (e.g. runner beans) and some ornamentals can be badly damaged. One specific biological control product is available, but ladybird and lacewing larvae will also feed on them. Mites will overwinter in conservatories, greenhouses, bamboo canes etc. If damage occurred last year expect a re-occurence and introduce the predator early. Control with Phytoseiulus.
