Mites Insecticide

Tetranychus urticae Insecticide

Description of Mites (Tetranychus urticae):
Mites are an invasive pest to the American lawn. They feed on the lawn when it is dormant and particularly dry in the wintertime. This means that in the spring when most of the lawn greens up and some of it is brown--that's a good indicator that you have mites.

A good way to test is to run a white piece of paper through the brown turfgrass. If there are black spots that are moving on the piece of paper, then you have mites.
