Spider Mites are the most common of all the indoor garden pests that feed on many fruit trees, vines, berries, vegetables, and ornamental plants. These tiny arachnids are so small they appear as tiny moving dots that you may not notice until they've caused significant damage to your plants. Spider mites harm your plants by taking juices from the stems and are most common under dry conditions hiding on the underside of leaves. Adult mites appear as oval shaped with eight legs and two red eyespots near the head. The presence of fine webs is an easy way to distinguish them from all other types of mites and small insects such as aphids and thrips, which can also infest underside of leaves. Isolate infested plants as soon as possible. Mites can often be controlled with Pyrethrin a naturally occurring substance in chrysanthemums, which paralyzes bugs and stops spider mites from feeding.
