Spider mitesSkimmiaInsectSpider mites vary in color from green to reddish to brown. They are extremely small and may be barely visible to the naked eye. Mites are commonly found on the underside of leaves and may be accompanied by strands of very fine webbing. Mite feeding on skimmia causes leaves to appear stippled or speckled with very small, yellowish dots. Heavy feeding may result in leaves appearing bronzed, sometimes with very little green tissue remaining. Spider mites are often worse in hot, dry, dusty conditions.
