Spidermites!
    #744430 - 08/19/14 04:23 PM (2 years, 3 months ago)

Got em.  Can't get rid of them.  Any suggestions?  Am growing in organic soil mixes so chemical free solutions would be preferred, however, I would not be above hearing about some chemical solvents that are tried and true.  Thanks.

AzaMax is organic and supposedly works well for spider mites. Ive never had them but it worked well for my fungus gnat infestation. Its expensive but a little bottle goes a long way.

I hear avid is the best stuff on the market for mites.

This will get rid of them in one treatment. Go organic and what you may be able to do is control them but I haven't seen a effective way to get rid of them organically.

we use stylet oil at work to get rid of spidermites. it's organic and does the trick. we hit the small transplants with them every 2 days or so if we see any mites or webs.

Rosemary oil is king.
Buy some today and mix about 30 drops in a hand sprayer bottle.
Apply as a foliar application, especially on undersides of leaves and even floors, and soil below your plants.  Spray today and see INSTANT results :smile:

Unlike others,
Rosemary:
Kills adults
Kills eggs
REPELS (the repelling effect is major)

You could be cleared up in about 3 days. After none are seen, spray once or twice weekly as preventative maintenance....

It even smells good and can be sprayed directly on your budding plants.
Won't harm plants, won't harm you....

Cheers :laugh:

TO THE WIN

(Those mites fuct my world before,  so seeing them die & sharing this is a pleasure for me)

From what Ive read rosemary doesn't kill anything, it just repels. And it didnt even do a very good job of that with fungus gnats...for me anyway.

For small infestations I still suggest what's worked for me in the past, which is just spraying all the leaves with water every day at least once a day. You won't kill them necessarily but I assume it works by knocking the mites and their eggs off the leaves so that future generations aren't born. Just a guess though.  You have to spray close and hard, and it takes a couple weeks to be mite free. Again this is for small infestations, like where you just can spot a few spider mites or mite webs on the under side of a few leaves.

Be sure to read up on "autoflower"/ruderalis seeds before choosing them. Unless you NEED autos, you might do much better with anything else. No more hoarding ultra genetics! We need more of the best not less!

Definitely kills spidermites on contact man.
  It costs about 7 bucks and I promise you'll be impressed

I unfortunately had the same results with rosemary oil as bEelzeBosS did. The nice thing about avid is that it's one and done. No need to spray the bottom of the leaves and no need to retreat. Once treated the plants are good for 40 days. Harmless to warm blooded animals.
