mite damage

nanelle_gw(9/Sunset 14)June 21, 2005

These are the leaves I believe are damaged by the mites in the picture in my other thread. How agressive should I be? Strong water? Soap? Neem Oil? Sulfur Dust? Or "vegetable dust" which has sevin and malathion in addition to sulfur. I remember these two from medical school, and would never consider it in years past, but I've already used a puff or two today.I actually saw green lacewing larvae as I was putting it on! Don't flame me...I lost plants fast last year, and the russet mite threads were freaking me out.

Here is a link that might be useful: mite damage?

Nanelle, I just can't tell by photo. Do you see fine webbing on the underside of leaf? Please see my response in your other thread. Take care , Farkee

Thanks for your response. Yes, there is fine webbing. The bugs in the other picture are magnified.
