What causes blister mites?
Feeding of females and their offspring causes blisters on developing leaves. As the blisters form, leaf cells near the center of the blisters die and pull apart as surrounding cells enlarge, creating a hole. Mites of the first spring generation enter blisters through these holes and feed on soft leaf tissue inside.
How do I get rid of grape mites and blisters?

What is grape leaf blister mite?
Grape vine blister mite is a type of gall mite. Gall mites are tiny (less than 0.3mm) sap-sucking creatures that cause a variety of abnormal growths on various plants.

‘Concord’ and ‘Riesling’ are two grape cultivars that are relatively susceptible to these mites.
How do you treat phylloxera?
Proper treatment consists of spraying the entire trunk and large branches with an insecticide labeled for controlling aphids. The trunk is sprayed because a majority of the eggs are laid in the cracks and cervices of the bark. The eggs hatch in the spring, when the leaves start to develop on the tree.
What causes bumps on grape leaves?
Bumpy growths on the bottoms of new leaves are most often caused by the grape phylloxera, an aphid-like insect. These bumps are galls caused by the grape phylloxera, an aphid-like insect with the rather intimidating name of Daktulosphaira vitifoliae, that once endangered the grape industry in Europe.
