What's bugging me...and my trees
« on: June 12, 2010, 12:25 PM »
This is the best pic I could get of these things. They are on just about every tree I have. These here are on a jbp I was decandling. They running in and out of soil particles, hiding among bark cracks and fissures. If these are mites they don't look like your typical spider mite and they don't show 8 legs. Mites are in th arachnid family same as spiders, ticks, scorpions, etc. They are ranging in size from .5mm to about 2mm. Now I just recently sprayed for insects along with a fungicide since I have two pines showing pine blight. Went ahead and sprayed all my trees. I'm at my wits end on these things. Anyone know what they are? Thank you!

Looks like some young form of something.  Have you seen any adult pests around?  Any sign of attack of any kind?  Or, are they just unsightly?  ;)

The only thing I see besides them is tiny black flies which aren't much bigger than those posted.
