Broad mite resembles cyclamen mite (see page 19) in size and appearance. The primary difference is that broad mite eggs have noticeable bumps on the surface and cyclamen mite eggs are smooth.
Dispose of all plants exhibiting symptoms of broad mite damage. Also, remove all plants within 1 foot of damaged plants. Broad mite control with miticides is difficult because they tend to be located in hidden, hard-to-reach areas.
