DE for Spider Mites???

canyongal284(9a)September 4, 2012

Was wondering if anyone here has tried using diatomaceous earth in spray form for the demon spider mite. Southern California heat makes most forms of organic control impossibe. Spinosad was a hopeful, but has not been helpful against them. Still looking for something that works!!

During cooler weather sulphur works well but will burn when it gets warm.
Adams flea spray works really well in warmer weather ( with IGR).
I keep meaning to try some old ivermectin since that should work. Not sure how to mix it but it is fairly safe, since it's used for scabies and other human parasites.
