The two-spotted spider mite is a notorious example as it has been proven capable of developing resistance to more than 92 active ingredients in pesticides. Once spider mites start to become widespread, it can be nearly impossible to manage them without experiencing crippling crop damage and reduced yields.

In Alabama, there are two common species of spider mites: two-spotted and russet. The two-spotted mites are easier to identify due to the two spots on their backs, while the russet mite is   mites should be released at the first sight of pest mites for effective control.
