what is the $50 bottle ? a name would help!
The real best way i hate to say it... buy the $50-60 bottle.... dilute and spray. a guaranteed product. Im not messin with home cures. Im not calling you a liar. Im just being careful.
Im sure this home made solution works, but I would find it hard to believe its more effective than a chemical pesticide designed to kill them
!!GET IN EARLY BEFORE SPIDERMITES DO!!
---I CAN'T GIVE YOU A BRAND NAME.....I'M NOT A HYDROPONIC DISTRIBUTOR---
I've used a variety of brands that aren't even on the market anymore.
I even tried to google the same brands just then, they really don't exist.
I've also used specific types of sheep drench that a hydroponics supplier has given me. It was very cheap due to the bulk buying the distributer was into. That was a powder that you mix into a spray bottle of water,it worked great. One gram of powder to a 500mL spraybottle of water. Sheep drench doesn't kill sheep, why would it kill a WEED?!?!?
There are some nice newer brands of pest control to help prevent or rid your plants of spidermite they are around the price of $25.00 and upwards.
It is best to spray your room, plants, and equipment with these before you start(NOT YOUR ELECTRICALS WHEN THEY HAVE THE POWER 'ON'.... TURN IT OFF FIRST AND LET IT DRY OUT). Also carefully repeat every 2-4 weeks. Focus on windows(inside and out), fans, exhausts, doors, (NEW EQUIPMENT OR ANYTHING NEW YOU BRING INTO THE ROOM!) Just as a prevention technique.
I FOLLOW THESE RULES, I've never, ever, had spidermites because of this reason.
My next door neighbours have had spidermites at the same time that I didn't, that is how I knew they were in my area, I stayed safe.
If my neighbours caught spidermites, 20 metres away from me, while I didn't, I think that proves to listen to me on this one.
Always check for signs of spidermites, everytime you look at your plants. Don't presume they are not there!!
You may never get spidermites, you may be lucky, it just isn't worth getting them AT ALL, or especially, right before HARVEST TIME!!!
Ask your local Hydro specialist for the preventative solution to spidermite that they are selling. Ask the dealer if it works for other people. Feel comfortable with your purchase. Be comfortable with the security of your plants. Be satisfied that an expert sold you a great product.
