Adult red mite killed by freezing cold, but the first mite eggs are hatching again due to the rising temperatures
The freezing cold of last week has killed many of the adult red mites. With adult mites we mean the red mites that have already sucked blood. However, red mite eggs can withstand the freezing cold. And where adult mites are, there are at least 8 times as many mites eggs. Because an adult red mite lays on average about 8 new eggs per day. And these eggs hatch at temperatures above 10 degrees Celsius. Especially with the predicted warm temperatures of above 15 degrees.
