    My glabrata is infested with mites. I have "Ortho Rose&Flower Insect Killer" (0.012% Bifenthrin) and Neem. I remember trying to find the recommended spray when i bought the Ortho, and failing. So i guess this is what is available here. Neem hasn't been very effective nor safe on the plants i tried it on in the past, but i'm willing to give it another go if anyone here has found it effective.

    Any advice?

    I've successfully destroyed a mite infestation on my N. hamata (!!) with Orthenex, sprayed pretty heavily once, and then again about a week later. It's been about 6 months now with no reccurance.

    Ah yeah, Orthenex. That's the one that wasn't available anywhere around here. Shucks.

    Hmmm. Anyone else?

    Hi D muscipula ,
    Avid, or akari both have worked well for me. Kinda expensive , but my mites drink orthenex.
    I am dying to try Floramite SC. It kills the mites and the eggs. Anyone here try that yet
