For the control of Spider MiteThe glasshouse spider mite or two spotted spider mite Tetranychus urticae is a common pest of greenhouse plants and crops with adult females laying up to 120 eggs in 3 weeks. The mites suck the contents out of plant cells and produce characteristic leaf damage of white or silvery speckled patches.

Spider Mites are difficult to see without a microscope, they often live underneath leaves and are only active when it is warm. The best way to find out if your garden has them is to look for the damage rather than the mite. Look out for leaf discoloration, initially the leaves have fine speckling where the cells have died and then a pattern of mottling.

Almost all greenhouse crops and soft fruit are vulnerable to infestation.
