I can't find a way to rid my bamboo of the bamboo spider mite. I have a number of plants so spraying them with oil and soap is daunting. I was told that a chemical called imidacloprid was a good systemic control and although I've applied this chemical a number of times, I still have mites. Other posters on this forum indicate that this chemical is not effective against mites. Who to believe???
I found an Oregon University site which outlines some chemical options and spoke of the chemical AVID. Does anyone know anything about AVID or it's effectiveness? Or any other control?
Any help would be appreciated....
