Morning all;

 

Since we have lived in our house we have been uable to fully use our garden over the summer as we appear to have harvest mite infestation that becomes apparent in the months of july.  The mites bite us all to bits. 

I have just started to spot the adult mites (look like bright red little spidery things) and I have been standing on them - as I dont want them to lay eggs.  This is obviously a little bit frutile as I'm sure there are hundreds! 

 

Has anyone any experience of erradicating them?  I would likke to get them before they lay their eggs for this year. Or what their burrows look like?  We have lots of defined holes in the boarders and lawn...

 

HELP!  I cannot do another summer of bites......

 

Thanks you
