Since the week end I have noticed a lot of spider mite damage in perennial beds on
campus and other places. Look at these poor butterfly weed plants at Hemlock Bluffs in Cary (which is awesome by the way). I posted a NC Pest News article about spider mites recently so you can visit that or our Insect Note for more. Just figured I would keep mite in your mind after the hot whiter we have had.
