red spider mite eggs on grow room plants From a spider mite egg hatching, it can take only 36/48 hours before they can also lay eggs too, ?this is very dependent on temperatures,? these eggs are normally laid very close to the plants vain, so?s there?s a yummy breakfast of sap waiting for them, when they do hatch them eggs which are 0.15mm ?pretty small? from which two thirds will be females.


As I?ve Said mite egg reproduction, can dramatically increase the warmer them temperatures are, I myself have had mite problems, indoors though winter, and observing them for seven days, I only noticed a small increase in mites.

Spring and summer temp, are a different story, from observing mites over the last few years I?ve observed from 60 degrees, it takes about 36 days for anything from 4 or 5 eggs a day.

Summer temps from 70 to 80 degrees, and female mite can produce in excess of 30 or more eggs a day ?each mite? and can live for up to 4 weeks, in which time a female red spotted spider mite can lay hundreds of eggs.
