  • Spider Mites on Juniper

    Created by Thomas Edwards on

    Your Predatory Mites (Spidex®) says it controls “Two Spotted Spider Mites”. I have spider mites that are attacking my junipers, but I don’t know what type of mites they are. A nursery said the little specks that moving were mites but didn’t know the type. If I crush one with my finger it leaves a red spot. How can I tell if your Predatory Mites (Spidex®) will work for me?

    Thomas –

    Predatory mites (Phytoseiulus persimilis) will attack a variety of pest mites and work very well providing pest levels are not high. However, from your description I cannot tell what type of mite you are trying to whack. I have provided a link to our mite control page below and hope it helps.
