I was recently doing a bit of online research on mites and came to a site at the university of indiana or something.
These folks said that mites need to transpire almost continually. They suggested using a bit of "wilt proof" on them as it slows the transpiration process down.
They also said that they have been successful using a mixture of 1/2 isopropyl alcohol to 1/2 water and spraying it directly on the plants making sure to cover entire surface top and bottom of leaves. let dry and then 15 minutes later hit them again with the same solution.
The site went on to say that they have seen very little harm to the plants treated and have had 100% success in killing the mites on the plants treated with this method.
Keep givin it to them!!! u need to get them all =) Keep us updated on the status report.Mr. Bud said:Heres the report... Clones are two weeks old, found spider mites.. They trippled over nite. I used the 50% iso and 50% water with a few drops of dish soap... I treated about 20 hrs ago... Plants wilted a little bit but not bad.. Kept a fan on them with flouro's just off the tops.. I found a half dozen mites this morning and the plants look great.. They seam to be coming back...
I think you guys maybe plant savers..
I'll send another update to let you know the progress
