    I dont see an overwhelming amount of depth/breadth saying its spider mites..
    a similar amount of depth/breadth says its NOT spider mites..
    the conclusion is actually very inconclusive..

    going back to page one..three members say its looks like spider mites..
    two members say it looks like a regular spider, snd not spider mites..

    definitely not a landslide for spider mites!

    I don't think he meant depth and breadth as in lots of individual people; he was referring to experience and expertise. Tony's well-established, highly respected nurseryman and both Pyro and NaN are extensively knowledgeable in matters of biology and botany (if I'm not mistaken, they're both professionals in the industry as well.) That's not to say that you don't have quite a few years under your belt, or that Kris isn't a very talented up-and-comer. But, really, it isn't quite as simple as three against two.
    Besides, isn't it better to be cautious with things as destructive as spider mites? I can see where some spiders' webs might also resemble Noddy's picture, but I also don't see any particular reason to assume that it isn't mites. At the very least, it couldn't hurt to keep an eye on them or take minor measures like misting with water or dilute rubbing alcohol.

    Noddy,
    only you can get to the bottom of this!
    and you can do it very easily..

    you must answer the question - "do you see spider mites"?
    yes or no..
    look closely at the webbing..get a magnifying glass if necessary..
    do you see a bunch of tiny mites crawling around?
    there should be a whole lot of them..they are usually reddish in color, although not always..
    if its spider mites, they should be very obvious..

    if its just a small "normal" spider, there will only be one of them, and you should be able to find him too..

    another way you can solve the mystery..
    take the one "infested" trap and wipe it clean of webbing..
    use a q-tip or a tissue and carefully clean off all the webbing..

    then watch over the next few days to see if the webs re-appear..
    then look for multiple tiny mites or one spider..

    it should actually be very easy to figure out if its spider mites or not..
    and you can do it much more easily than any of us..

    pictures over the internet cant solve the mystery..
    only you, armed with a magnifying glass, can solve this 100%..

    You dont have to be so rude to someone who was trying to help you Noddy.
    Not only did i back you up yesterday when someone called you names in a thread you posted against mods, but i tried to give you the benefit of the doubt that those werent mites and chiming in with what i thought it was. And its true, you were growing a flytrap indoors in a terrarium were you not? i mean it causes a huge fuss. how am i to know that it was not this flytrap, so excuse me for the confusion. Have fun getting advice from others, dont bother expecting any from me if your rude little escapade continues.

    SirKristoff I am sorry if you took offence, however its not always best to assume...

    I have them indoors and out & yes I wanted to jamjar them however took advise!. PS thanks for the support!
    I have seen blood like spiders in the past however I have been all over the plant with a spy glass, nothing moving ... it's dust and as I first thought normal spider...

    Though I am not sure if the red spider is the same as what your all on about...

    As per my threads I have bought quite a few new versions, and there increasing as soon as I have the chance to obtain one...

    SirKristoff if you don't wish to help then I respect that...

    Then maybe you should word things differently when you post
    like thinking before you speak. I do not come here to type out an explanation on something only to be replied to in a rude fashion by a member who claims they have shipped out and received thousands of plants per week (referring to your "carnivorous plant imports" you spoke of in chatbox) when your first post here was a little under a year ago, requesting help on how to grow a VFT since you were new to them.
    So, here we are, giving you advice and your rudely replying and not taking any advice or even considering what others tell you.

    SirKristoff I was not refering to VFT plant but aquatic plants.. which are a lot easy to pack... ;-)

    I know I have done it so that's all that matters...

    I don't know it all, so there we have it... I have come to you as you do ;-)
