Spider Mites

garf_gwMay 21, 2012

It seems that what I thought was nutrient shortages is actually spider mites. This is a bad infestation and I have a history of not being able to deal with them. I need help. How do I kill these things without killing my plants?

ladybugs, predator mites, other garden spiders, preying mantis..

or you could use soapy water, or a professional insecticidal soap

they can be dealt with, but if the infestation is bad, it may be too late for the plants, but it certainly can't hurt to try
