In Britain there are over 650 species of spiders - most of these are small and secretive and consequently overlooked by the majority of people.
Gall mites are extremely tiny plant feeders, often around 0.5 mm in size. They are members of the Arachnid group, which includes spiders and mites, and are small enough to pierce and feed on individual plant cells, causing the surrounding cells to enlarge and multiply to form the gall.
