Spider Mites

Spider Mites are extremely small and often difficult to see with the unaided eye. Found on plants, spider mites range in color from red and brown to yellow and green. Their bodies are oval-shaped, and measure less than 1 millimeter in length. They have four pairs of legs.

Spider mites are usually responsible for indoor plant damage. Look for mottled leaves or small strings of silky web hanging off your plants. Spraying both the top and bottom of the plant leaves with water should be enough to dislodge mites and break up their webs.
