Spider Mites On Tomatoes - Bonide 8
Hello - We live in the OKC area and my six tomato plants (various varieties) looked beautiful until last week when the leaves on some started to curl and turn yellow. I thought it might be a watering issue so adjusted my watering, but it got much worse over the weekend. After some internet research and checking the plants, I realized that it is spider mites. I am not an experienced vegetable gardener, and I have never dealt with mites before, so I went to one of the large garden centers for advice. I had read that Neem oil was a good product to use, but the clerk steered me toward Bonide 8 instead. I treated the plants last night, but now I wonder if I should have used something different. It may be too late at this point, since I didn't recognize the problem when it first started....The clerk advised not treating again for 14 days, but is there anything else I can do besides wait and watch? Should I fertilize to encourage new growth? I appreciate any advice.
