Our dry weather is causing another issue you need to keep an eye on – spider mites.
Spider mites typically rise in numbers with dry weather and are an issue in this state. They appear to be little greenish white mites that are hard to see but you can shake the leaf on a white paper and can see them. Even with our dry year, if they get bad enough you
need to spray. Contact the Clark County Extension Office at 660-727-3339 to get more information or assistance.
