Post by Muhammad Bilal » April 27th, 2016, 10:57 pm

Assalam o alekum

Any one could tell me what is wrong with this dahlia plant leaves? Plz (and I have checked it is not bcoz of spider mites or other insect, low or high humidity or nutrient deficiency)
Thanks all.

This is thrips attack along with broad mites (much smaller than spider mites)...

Any Imidacloprid for thrips... any miticides like Kope, Oberon etc... you can look for active ingredients like Pyridabin, Propergite for miticides...

Thank u Izhar.

I checked carefully using magnifying glass and did not find any insect there but I m agree with u, may be broad mite attack, as symptoms resemble caused by broad mites.
