Apricot Pest-European Red Mite

From UC IPM Panonychus ulmi European red mites overwinter as eggs located at the base of buds and spurs on smaller branches or in wounds. Eggs are red with a slender stipe arising from the center. Newly hatched mites are green, but with feeding turn red with a white spot at the base of each hair. These mites have 5 to 10 generations per year.
