Description

Twospotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae (Arachnida: Acari: Tetranychidae), is an occasional pest of corn and soybean in Iowa. However, spider mite damage is more pronounced in crops during moisture-stressed growing conditions (Haile and Higley 2003). In 2012, many fields had significant spider mite feeding and subsequent yield loss (Hodgson 2012).
