Red Mites on my cactus! Help!!!
Recently Ive noticed very small, nearly invisible, gray and sometimes red, mites on my cactus that I keep outdoors year-round on my porch. Ive never had any issues with pests prior to this. After doing some research Ive concluded that I have red spider mites.
Some of the issues can be seen in the attached photo: Scarring and cuts, discoloration, wispy webs, and discoloration of new growth on the cactus. (The top left picture is part of the container the cactus is in and the red dot is what i beleive to be a mite.)
I need help very fast. Ive learned that these mites can be detrimental to your plants, especially cacti. I need to know what kind of pesticide or treatment I should give my plant. What kind of treatments work best for my situation and which are too risky or harmful on the plant. Any information you can give be will be beneficial.
