Good miticide in EU

Recommended Posts

Scuipici    8

Anyone knows a good miticide against spider mites? My drosera spatulata has some spider mites and the miticide that I have burns the plants. If anyone knows a place within EU where I can buy it ( preferably not too expensive) I would appreciate it a lot.

I've used on dioneas "Bayer garden- Borneo", with good results, but it kills only eggs and larvae of spider mites, not adults

I've used borneo too on vfts and it was really goog. I also sprayed the sundews just for precaution without burning sign. And yes its specific against eggs and juvenile form.

There are some products for adult ones, but I've never used it... The adultes ones die if the water touch them... so you could one day spray the plants with water and, after some days, to use "Bayern Borneo" to kill all eggs and larvae;-)

I'll try that, I'm ordering one bottle and i'm going to try it. Spider mites are my nightmare, I'm starting to have dreams of them killing my entire collection of plants.

I take that you are sure that it really is red spider. Cp's are grown in such wet conditions that red spider doesn't generally like it like that. 

You could try spraying with plain water regularly, red spider wouldn't like that and would simply clear off.

Could also try submerging the plant for a day , I'm sure a sundew would survive
