Clemson Extension Program Team
Several phytophagous mite species, including spider mites, eriophyid mites, tarsonemid mites, flat mites, and bulb mites, are pests of ornamental plants. This article provides information on the identification, biology, and management of these phytophagous mites to ornamental plant growers, arborists, landscape care professionals, crop protection advisors and consultants, and Extension personnel. This article discusses biological control commercially available for mite management, and the target species, life stage spectrum, use site, and biological control compatibility of miticides currently registered in the United States.
