in desperate need of advice for spider mites HELP!!
Hi all,it has been a long time since I have been able to participate in the GW. I need some help with spider mites PLEASE.
all of my precious DR have them I made a huge mistake this winter when they were all inside, I brought in a 5 gallon bucket of angel trumpet (brugs) cuttings to root and we all know that they are born with spider mites at least down here they are . I sprayed all of my DR when I was able to bring them out this spring and thought they were cured , but now they are covered and I have around 75 of them, a lot of new ones I have yet to see bloom , we have had almost constant rain for weeks, 6 inches this past week , I am wanting to defoliate all of them and then start spraying which will take some time to cut off all of those leaves but I am desperate , also now when I spray I will no doubt loose all of the buds forming.Any advice would be so welcome. Thank you Ronda
