red spotting on tender pear leaves

Noogy(6 sw mi)May 4, 2013

I have a hosui, chojuro. harrow sweet with red spotting on the leaves with raised bumps. I thought that my sulfur/oil sprays should have taken care of the blister mites and such. Do I hit them again with light oil? Bring out the triazicide?

Can you post a photo? Better to know exactly what the problem is before spraying randomly.

Sounds like blister mites to me. I think hort oil takes care of them?

I got my glass out and sure enough! I dont see any 2 spotted mites though. Apparently I need to up my % of oil and quit 'eyeing it' when mixing product. Time to get out the TBSP.
