This mite feeds on the undersides of leaves and is difficult to see. Infested leaves appear to be pin pricked or stippled with tiny white or yellow spots. The boxwood mite is a pest of both European and American boxwood varieties. Japanese boxwood is less susceptible. Adult mites are greenish-brown. They may be found on the upper or lower surface of leaves.
