Except when they are babies, which can confound the picture for maybe
a day or two, spiders mostly are larger than, say, 1/8" across
(finger-to-toe), and don't travel in herds. > I recently moved to a

Any advice? Many mites, on the other hand, e.g. spider mites, are in
the set of damage causers. Different types of spider mites vary of
course, but most are 1mm or smaller across (finger-to-toe), and once
established tend to exist in great population densities, like hundreds
per leaf. There are biological controls for spider mites, including
various predatory mites. Mark Andersen <> wrote on
13Jan96 that aphids and fungus gnats are controlled by spraying with a
mixture of: 1 C. rubbing alcohol 3 C. water 1/8 C. Dawn dishwashing
detergent so maybe this will work for spider mites, too. I'll
probably try it this year -- last summer spider mites ate up all my
eggplant plants. The life cycle of spider mites is such that mite
control spray programs usually specify spraying at least three times,
a week apart. ~-- Brent CHILE-HEADS DIGEST V2 #268 From the
