Old Spider Mite Remedies
I was looking in an old book (well not real old- published in 1978)called, 'The Encyclopedia of Organic Gardening'. Under spider Mites it lists a couple different remedies. I don't think I wanna try some of them but they made me smile. Who knows maybe they will work:
#1 Use high pressure spray mixed with 5lbs of flour, 1 pint of buttermilk, and 25 gallons of water (this was for an orchard's use thus the big recipe) The sticky mixture is supposed to suffocate the mites without hurting the plants.
#2)Mix phosphate, or ground limestone and mix with a sticky liquid (possibly the one above?) and spray on the plants.
#3 Blast leaves frequently with COLD water.
Anyone else got any old remedies? This could be fun.
