    Red spider mites are usually found on the undersides of orchid leaves and appear as a reddish rust to the naked eyes - to people with good eyesight they may even see the minute pests moving about. A good dose of miticide will help to kill this pest. Usually wetting the underside of the leaves will help to control mites.

    Thank you! I found on the undersides of orchid leaves but not as a reddish rust. I made a cocktail with 2 acaricide solutions (Milbeknock EC & Envidor 240 SC). I hope to escape definitive by tiny creatures
