Never had mites on my orchids, but I've occassionally had them on other plants. By the time I found the mites, it was almost too late. Sometimes I felt a loss of patience in getting rid of them and actually dumped a plant or two, just to save the others. And I also had trouble finding a good miticite and probably used products that were not completely effective.

These evil critters seem to appear overnight and by the time you spot them, they've done a ton of damage. Good luck on getting rid of them.
