Clemson Extension Program Team
This article describes bermudagrass mite biology, symptoms of mite infestation, and potential management strategies against bermudagrass mite in turfgrass and hay. Monitor grass for the characteristic symptoms of mite infestation, including crowded and stunted leaves and tiller proliferation. Combine cultural control strategies, such as reduced fertilization and scalping of turf, with miticides for an effective management program.
