How do I get rid of spider mites?


Spider mites can quickly eradicate your pepper plants! Early detection is important in their control. Watch for yellowing leaves. Spider mites suck the chlorophyll out of the plant leaf making it turn yellow. Systemic controls usually work best since they get into the plant and are ingested with the chlorophyll. Systemic controls can take 1-3 weeks to be effective and you will need to watch for infestations as eggs hatch.
