Anyone have any organic remedies for wiping out spider mites on plants? I want the most organic way possible.
I like the lady bug idea. Garlic would be worth a shot. If the plants are potted, you could take the plants out of their pots, swish the tops in water and replace in their pots. I have done all kinds of things to take care of issues but it would help to know what kind of plants you have; in or out of doors and potted or in the ground. Treatment (if you want to call it that) would be different for all these situations.The kind I am growing cannot have too much water exposure. Maybe garlic cloves boiled in water, then spray it on the leaves of the plant?
This.What kind of plant are you noticing them on? In my garden, there are a few plants that are prone to red spider mites. All I ever do is jet a spray of water at the plant. I try to "rinse" the stems and branches. That's it! I don't believe there is anything that is 100% safe. Even the water jet will jet anything in it's path.
