Broad and russet mites have been a huge problem in the medical herb industry in recent years, sometimes devastating entire crops if not recognized and treated quickly. Most uninitiated growers see the affects of these pests and think "deficiency," Often, the first signs of broad and russet mite damage is a curling of leaf edges, or "canoeing" (like the boat). Feeble, yellowy brown new growth is another sign of these pests, as are deformed leaves and odd color streaking. Later in the flowering stage, an infestation can start at the bottom of the plant and work up destroying flowers until the plant is a total loss.
