tomato plant pests

I have some seedling tomato plants, a few of which are being munched by what I can only describe as tiny, thin, white spiders. They are eating the leaves, and the infected plants I have thrown out. They are in my greenhouse, but I had the same thing last year on older plants that were growing on out doors.Has anyone else had this problem? any suggestions as to get rid of themwould be appreciated

    I have them growing in my greenhouse now but plan to put them outside.

  • Sounds like red spider mite, Gina. If you mist the plants daily to increase humidity, the spiders should move on. More information here

    The red spider mites I come across aren't white. They're also so tiny as to be almost invisible to the naked eye.

    Do they look, literally, like spiders? Can you count legs?
