Any good results with predatory mites? In the past neem, neem, neem. But trying the predatory route in this infestation, so far they look pretty gone. I'll be applying for the next few weeks and hope these initial results keep up.

Safer's Soap Dip Tanks - not the kind you spray on, the time you dip the entire plant into - works good.

Because of the spider mite egg cycle, you have to dip every 3 days (or 2 days).

And of course, spray down EVERYTHING (walls etc.), move misc. crap that might be stored to another room (not a grow room).

Also to make the dip tank work I make a little round cardboard circle thing to cover the top of the soil when plants are dunked (or it all falls out in the dip tank.)

Make a damn spray from fresh lavender flowers... it kills the eggs,larva, and adults... Jay kush has a recipe to make it on here... it's in the organics for mites thread... it's so easy and works better than anything else I've ever used other than heat treatments and I've used everything trust me... I'll post the link

simply take some lavender sprigs( sticks with flower buds on them) and strip the flower buds off. take a 1 liter bottle, add a 1/4 cup or so of lavender flower buds. let soak for 48 hours, then strain the plant material out well. dilute 1:50 and spray your plants lightly on infected areas, make sure to get under the leaves. repeat in 5 days. so far everyone i have told it to and has tried it has had success in killing mites, coot said even the eggs die which is pretty cool.
