Mites

Mites_symptomsSpider mites infest a variety of conifer species, including pines, spruce, hemlocks, arborvitaes and others. The mites pierce and suck nutrients from conifer needles.  Because spider mites are so tiny, the easiest way to diagnose infestation is to take a twig sample from your conifer and beat it against a white piece of paper; the spider mites will appear as moving brown specks on the paper.  Spider mites create webbing at the base of needles and branches.

Symptoms

Needles will become mottled in color. This will progress into needle discoloration and in severe infestations, needle loss.
