Are we going to get hit hard with spider mites if this hot and dry weather continues?


Yes. However, we often see hot and dry spells followed by cooler and wet periods so no need to panic, but certainly a time to keep our eyes open for spots long the field edges. The spring wasn’t a particularly good one for giving mites a head start, but two weeks of temps in the upper 90s with no rain can change things in a hurry. Spider mites aren’t the threat they used to be due to changes in pesticides we use and how we use them, but if conditions are favorable they could become a problem. I will do my best to keep you updated and please let me know if you see any problems.
