    What for? Some growers use it when necessary, but it's considered a big gun and that much firepower isn't generally needed.

    Big gun? Heck I wouldn't care if it's nuclear! LOL The sooner the better, and my dad swears by the stuff so we have a HUGE stock of it(he also grow x-mas trees and a garden). So what is a weaker "substitute"? I have what I assume are mites because they aren't aphids.

    I like Neem and also experimented successfully against scale this winter with a product organic hydroponic growers use called Organocide. It's a sesame oil and fish oil blend. During the winter I water my orchids in the kitchen sink and I won't use the bad stuff.
