There are two types : the fruit tree red spider mite on broad-leaved trees and the conifer spinning mite on conifers. Indications of infection are an unhealthy browning of the foliage accompanied by a silky webbing. Tiny spider-like mites may also be seen on leaf undersides. These can cause serious damage and should be sprayed with insecticide - ideally Malathion or Derris. Alternative type is the Glasshouse Red Spider Mite or "Web-forming Tetranychus".
