Spider mites are less than 1 mm in size and can vary in colour. They lay small, spherical, eggs which are initially transparent and many species will spin webbing around the eggs to protect them from predators. They live on various types of plant on the under sides of its leaves and cause damage by puncturing the plant cells to feed.
It works by a physical means blocking the breathing holes of the red mites and insects causing death by suffocation. Any spider mite eggs are unlikely to hatch due to their encapsulation within the medium and their obvious inability to transpire successfully into an adult spidermite.
