Abstract/Contents:Addresses a question regarding "a small brown area of dead turf on one of our fairways which appeared to be covered with a very fine spider web, the area has increased considerably during subsequent months, starting over an area of about one foot in diameter it has now increased to about six feet." Identifies the problem as an infestation of mites or red spiders. Explains that "these tiny organisms feed by piercing the epidermis of the plants they infest and suckling the cell contents, the mass feeding resulting in the withering and death of the parts affected." Notes that the webbing serves as protection for the red spider eggs and that "control measures involve the use of sulphur."
