Spider Mites Treatment in Arlington, TX.

Although they are so tiny that they are barely visible to the naked eye and are not much larger than the period at the end of a written sentence, spider mites are one of the most common, annoying tree and plant pests throughout the United States and let their presence be known by the silky webbing they spin on the underside of leaves. These spider-like creatures are most prevalent in warm and dry climates; therefore, they multiply rampantly and are a continual nuisance in Arlington and the DFW metroplex due to the typically hot summers in this region. An experienced tree company begins encountering these outdoor residential irritants in early spring as warmer weather conditions arrive and spider mites infest both outdoor trees and plants as well as garden areas. With over a thousand different species of spider mites, certified arborists are constantly battling the two most common varieties of Tetranychidae (their scientific name) in Texas which is the southern red mite and the two-spotted mite. Their bodies are oval and vary in color from yellow, greens and browns and many have dark spots as well. With eight legs as arachnids do, they siphon the nutrients from leaves and render the plants in a weakened, visually displeasing condition. Left untreated, spider mite invasion frequently leads to the death of the tree or plant so it is absolutely essential to procure the expertise of a tree care specialist when you initially suspect spider mite activity.

Spider Mites Treatment Tree Disease

An experienced plant pathologist swiftly arrives at a confirmed diagnosis by thoroughly examining the leaves, bark, and soil. Leaves which have been attacked by spider mites die or are severely wilted, discolored, often have a bronzish or silvery tone and have numerous tiny dots where the spider mites have pierced them to drink the nutritional fluids. The slightly sticky webs they spin on the underside of leaves gives a dusty, dirty appearance and is where they attach their eggs to endure the winter season until they hatch in early spring. Adult spider mites also hide in bark crevices to survive cooler winter weather. In addition, the webbing provides a means of transportation throughout the outdoor habitat for the pests and they use the webbing similar to that of a parachute to travel within the residential grounds by gusts of wind or blowing rain. A certified arborist will examine the soil because infested dead twigs and leaves which fall to the ground further contribute to spider mite occupation. The tree evaluation report will be presented when spider mite infestation is confirmed by the arbor care professional and a personalized treatment and solution plan will be designed by the best arborist in Arlington, Texas who will ensure that the habitat grounds receive the necessary on-going maintenance and care.

Treatment Of Spider Mites Treatment

Trees and plants that are either dead or severely infested by spider mites must be immediately removed from the residential grounds, along with any fallen debris, and properly destroyed by a professional tree service to reduce the eggs and adult spider mite population and control further reproduction. Regularly-scheduled tree trimming and pruning by a tree service are essential to controlling spider mite populating and will eliminate any leaves or twigs in question. Scheduled water spray blasts on tree and plant leaves remove the silky webbing along with the eggs and greatly reduces the spider mite populace. The outdoor environmental habitat must be kept clean and the grounds free from broken bark that the spider mites can use to hide within or reproduce. Organic methods of treatment, such as releasing natural predators like ladybugs that feed upon spider mites, are options depending upon the severity of infestation and the Arlington tree company will be able to provide and monitor this preventative treatment method. Insecticides may be used but must be regularly-scheduled and professionally applied by an arborist that treats sick trees. Maintaining the health of the residential trees and plants by enlisting the services of an arbor care professional is of extreme importance to protecting the prized trees and plants and ensuring they will never succumb to spider mite destruction!
