    Clones came from a very well known source too, damn people sellin dirty clones. 2nd time in a row burned by dirty seller.
    if you don't have to keep the clones i'd trash em. but if you wanna keep them pickup og biowar foliar pack. spray everything twice a week. you can find it for like $35 which you can use for like 3 months. good luck!

    Russet mites are a common problem.

    Best way to avoid them is to not have tomatoes in your outdoor garden.

    Cherry tomatoes usually have them crawling all over the vine parts.

    Take a branch of any of your tomato plants and shake it over any flat surface you can examine (even the deck)... you'll see them all over.

    ----------
    Russet Mite control:

    Royalty and Perring (1987) evaluated five acaricides on tomato russet mite and a tydeid mite predator, Homeopronematus anconai. For tomato russet mite, avermectin B1 (Avid, Agrimer) was the most toxic, followed by dicofol, cyhexatin, sulfur, and thuringiensin. According to their study, selective doses of Avermectin B1 could provide good control of tomato russet mite while conserving a predator of the tomato russet mite, H. anconai.

    Looks like Avid plus predators would work very well.

    K nubs they should be the same in terms of treatment. I am trying to save someone else's multi-room scene already containing B M s. Me entering midway. May the Deities be with me.

    i had russet mites, no broads,
    broads are lil and round, smaller than russets, russets are oblong like a lil worm.

    i had good results with sulfur brand wettable sulfur (sold as a fungicide ) against russets

Seem to be leaving the fruit trees alone but they are still around. Hopefully the cold winter will kill everything outside. I will continue to treat my moms indoors with Kontos and biowar to keep them safe until then.
    I would try some swirskii mites as predators and try to build up a natural population. Im going in with some other local growers on a monthly order to use as preventative maintenance in my garden through out the year..
