    Spidermites

    Can someone give me some advice on how to get rid of spidermites in a nep collection? I'm not having much luck so far so I could use some advice.....I've used neem and sevin but they keep coming back. After two rounds of sevin they seemed to dissapear but they came back a month later, I've tried neem but again, the second I stop using it they are back.....


    Can they be killed?
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Once upon a time, way earlier in the growing season, I had spidermites on everything!
    Then I was told to get Green Light Neem II.
    I did.
    And my plants lived happily ever after.
    The end.

    Hmm....I used 100% pure neem and it isn't working....perhaps there is something in the Green light that works better....

    BTW, how often and how many times did you apply it?

    Green Light II has extra poisons ;D

    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.

    Thanks for the link......it explains why sevin didn't work out too well........


    So if I'm reading it right, I should just keep carpet bombing them with neem untill they give up?

    So it didn't seem to be toxic to any of the CPs you used it on?

    Nope!! It was recommended to me here, by a few other people who had used it. One guy even used it on his Neps. It wasn't toxic at all. If it were, I wouldn't have used it

    pretty much standard operating procedure.... then hopefully the natural balance of predator to mite will return once the sevin works it way out of the system.
