I'm Wondering

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!

RE: I'm Wondering

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.
