So i am currently waging war on spidermites that came with some brugs i bought a few weeks ago :'( not happy. they have spread to some of my prized plants in the ground and i would really like to get rid of them. I have just started attempting to control them with the following. - Wettable Sulphur sprayed late afternoons (have heard copper might be a better option) doing this every day and hosing the plants down the following morning to try and blast off as many as i can. - blasting the underside with the hose i am looking at investing in some predator mites but my understanding is that many enjoy different climates wondering if anyone could name a species of predator that would thrive in sub-tropical QLD conditions? Also if all else fails what do you guys think is a guaranteed chemical that will kill these mofos in their tracks. I have spinosad which is supposedly a miticide so i might give it a go over the next couple of days too.
