I'm Wondering

tomatomanbilly(7)December 13, 2011

A man told me one time that if a chicken had nowhere else to roost except a cedar tree he would never be bothered with lice or mites. Hmmm!

If I moved some little red cedars or cut some bows to place around my tomatoes, would I have the same protection from RED SPIDER MITES?

Lord, I hope so. If you have any info or opinions on this LET ME KNOW.

Best of luck to everyone!

The type of mite that pesters chicken is a different mite than the type that attack our plants. Junipers, I know, are very susceptible to red spider mites and I believe Cedars have their own trouble with attracting spider mites. I think you might get the opposite effect of attracting spider mites instead of repelling them.
