spider mite magnification question
Default spider mite magnification question

OK, had a bad bout of resistent spider mite, so I need to take a bit more care in the future. A magnifying glass is awkward when you really need both hands, so I thought of getting a jeweller's loupe.
Now here's the serious question. What magnification do you need to spot spidermite easily?

I think the minimum magnification is 10x.

I use a 5x loope, and it works pretty good.
