Somewhere in southern Oregon, in a geothermally heated greenhouse, at the edge of ancient Lake Klamath, intelligent people are raising spider mites on a massive scale, on purpose. They raise them for their eggs which are then shipped to another facility, hatched out and used as food for a different kind of mite that feeds ravenously on spider mites. Those mites are sold and shipped all over the world to bring spider mite infestations under control without the use of pesticides. Kinda cool, in a surreal sort of way.

Here then is a brief glimpse into that strange world.
