New spider mite fact sheet

| Leave a comment

By Ken Ostlie and Bruce Potter

Reports of spider mite infestations continue from both soybean and corn, particularly from areas with prolonged drought.  Even if you've received rain recently, check for mite activity along field edges to determine if you've got a building problem.  You may need to factor spider mites into a soybean aphid spray decision.

The article is available on the web at: http://www.extension.umn.edu/agriculture/soybean/pest/managing-two-spotted-spider-mites-on-soybeans/.

Well so much for the relatively arthropod pest- free growing season.
