Rubber trees pests and diseases: Mites.

Rubber trees pests and diseases: Mites.

The white mite (Calacarus heveae) is found at the bottom of the leaves and the red mite (tenuipalpus heveae) at the top of the leaves. The APABOR recommends in a technical paper the following. 

1 – Avoid pulverization without criteria, because, it can reach natural enemies of the mite, predators of culture-damaging mites. 

2 – When natural enemies are present, avoid chemical control. 

3 – Always identify the mites and other pests before taking any action. 

4 – Control is recommended when there are endemic areas, clones less tolerant to the mites and when there is large infestation identified with the help of a magnifying glass.
