    There only new to us cause of weed blow'n up world wide, the Russet mite itself may have been around for hundreds, thousands if not millions of years, but im not sure.
    What i am sure about is these make mites seem fun from what ive been told, and are only really passed around by clone, so GROW FROM SEED.

    Interesting,
    I think I have encountered them. My circle of friends had this mysterious problem that we considered "Rust" which would usually cause problems mostly in flowering. Shriveled up and dusty growth starting at the bottom and moving up. We suspected deficiencies and fungus, but not really russet mites. I had looked it up and could only find references for citrus crops.
    One terrible scene I saw was in an under-lit and humid veg room, and the new growth shriveled up and was consumed by this brown dust! Literrally a dust eating the new growth. The only way the problem was cured was culling the crop and starting with clean clones. Weird!!!!

    News Flash guys....Hemp Russet Mites can live and lay eggs on SEEDS!!! Yes, its true. They have learned to survive winters on seeds. These fuckers are truly evil!

    but again. i think you can gas everything with co2. best is small clones. you can gas them over weeks daily... nothing that needs air will survive this. get a clean veg and bomb clean flower room. no more problems.
