Q.Red Spider Mites

Anonymous added on April 18, 2011 | Answered

I seem to have a recurring infestation of red spider mites. They seem to be the most noticable and infested on my fieldstone, my Windsor stones, and my fieldstone waterfall. I sprayed with Spectracide to no avail and followed with Ortho 150 and as soon as it dried the mites were still everywhere and seemed unaffected by the poison. I need a spray type of solution because of the volume of fieldstone and Windsor stones in my yard affected. Any ideas?

We have found the best way to treat spider mites is with neem oil. Not only is it effective, but it's also quite safe to both plants and animals (as well as humans). This article should help you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm
