Spider Mite Season!

Vancouver Landscape

It’s prime time for one pest that can rapidly decimate a group of blue atlas cedars, arbor vitae, or a wide variety of plants: the spider mite.

These little guys are small, but can do major damage to your trees– they brown needles and can quickly kill when they infest the leaves and needles of your plantings. They actually puncture the plant’s cells to feed and can impact a lot of common and popular plantings. They pop up the most in warm weather, especially where it’s dry.
