MITES, RED SPIDER: Cymbidium's Worst Pest It produces small white spots on undersides of leaves, they spread from leaves to flowers; are less active outdoors; water sprays indoors only keep them down temporarily; they can increase in great numbers very quickly; control with Pentac or Kelthane,- if in flower or bud use a wettable powder with a wetting agent.
