    Where did you get it?
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Yeah, I hope so, I had no idea sevin could cause problems like that, it works so well on other kinds of pests that I figured it would help....My last use of sevin was about a month ago.

    I've had luck with neem if I used it early in an attack. And even then I had to really stay on top of it. But I had a really bad attack that made me pull out the big guns. I sprayed each plant and soaked the pots in Orthene. It's systemic and it worked. I did 3 treatments to break the cycle. But it's nasty stuff and I avoid it if at all possible.

    Turns out that almost every housplant in my house was affected with mites too.......my mother used soapy water on her houseplants and I used neem on mine, I currently have some greenlight II on it's way in the mail so I can use that next week.


    Year of the mite.....

    Um...I used it every other day or two until I stopped seeing them and new growth stopped getting destroyed. I didn't really keep track.
    <-----super lazy
    BTW....On the directions for the greenlight I ordered, it says to wash the leaves 30min after application to avoid leaf damage....did you do this when you used it?

    When using the neem extract, freshness matters especially when using for insect control rather than fungus. Only make enough at a time to use for a day or two.
