Evicting Spider Mites
Signs your plant may have a Spider Mite infestation
- You may notice small brown or yellow dots on the leaves of a plant
- Upon further inspection, you should start to see very fine silky strands of webbing on the plant.
- Up close you will notice the spider mites moving around in the webbing
My poor little Lemon tree has recently come down with a case of Spider Mites.
I want to treat this right away.
I wrapped and secure the pot with a kitchen trash bag to keep the potting soil dry.
The shower will wash away cobwebs and most of the mites.
Then apply homemade insecticidal soap using the following ingredients you have around the house.
Homemade Insecticidal Soap
- 1/2 gallon of Luke warm water
- 1 TB. Dish Detergent
- 1/2 TB. Olive Oil
- 1/2 TB Rubbing Alcohol
