Neem oil spider mite Spray
Spider Mite Spray (good natural remedy for grow rooms)
1 Tbls Neem oil
1 tsp dish soap
1 qt water
1 qt spray bottle
Mix, shake well and spray especially on the underside of leaves. Spray before flowers form. Do not spray during flowering stage.
Lady bugs are a wonderful alternative. Neem oil kills the lady bugs so take care. Also a little fact. Lady bugs will transport spider mite larva from a sprayed pot to one that hasn't been as they farm them. They will dwindle down the population of spider mites but they will not wipe them out as they use them for their young.
Spray the dirt with cold water. this will dround some of the spider mites and the lady bugs will need the water.
