Spider mites, while members of the arachnid family, have little to do with spiders. Spider mites are tiny pests that infest your plants, eat the leaves, and suck the life out of your garden.
Their reproductive habits are enthusiastic, meaning a small number of mites can explode into a full-blown infestation in under a month, and also means that they develop quick immunities to the chemicals in pesticides.

There are ways to deal with them. In this article, you’re going to discover how to recognize spider mite infestations, things you can do to prevent them, and how to deal with an infestation.
