Growers Reminded to Watch For Spider Mites
Growers Reminded to Watch For Spider Mites
Row crop growers are reminded to scout their fields this time of year for spider mites.  WSU Extension’s Tim Waters says it’s the time of year when spider mites begin to develop and thrive thanks to the warm dry weather.  Waters notes spider mites are typically held in check by other predators, but many of those predators are gone, thanks to a spring and summer of regular insecticide application.
