A New Deep Look Episode is Now Live: These Mites Rain Down To Save Your Strawberries


Recommended Posts

My name is Jenny Oh, and I’m the Audience Engagement Producer for a wildlife video YouTube series called Deep Look. This award-winning series is produced by PBS Digital Studios and KQED, the public media station in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I wanted to let you all know that we have an exciting new episode that premiered today that we think you might be interested in: “These Mites Rain Down To Save Your Strawberries”. 

Here’s a brief description: Two tiny mites duke it out on strawberry plants throughout California. One is a spider mite that sucks the juices out of the delicious crop and destroys it. The other, persimilis, is a crafty predator that growers drop by the thousands from high-tech drones to protect their fields.

You can watch it here; let us know what you think!
