For those that do not know spider mites are one of the most common pests found on indoor and outdoor plants. They feed on the leaves of our plants; leaving small yellowish dots and an overall speckled appearance on our crops. This feeding causes damage to plants and may even kill them if left unchecked. Spider mites can thrive in hot, dry environments which are often found when temperatures heat up during the summer months. Hence spider mites are quite prevalent in our summer pesticide program.I’ve been working with a handful of organic methods for red spider mite control for the past several years and have thoroughly enjoyed sharing these tips with my blog readers. Please read on if you would like to know more about natural spider mites pesticides and spider mite control products.
Natural Pesticide For Spider Mites
1 tablespoon dishwashing liquid
Dishwashing liquid is a mild soap that contains surfactants. Surfactants are surface active agents, which regulate the surface tension of water. Soap breaks water tension, allowing water to penetrate the mite’s exoskeleton and kill it.
2 cups water
As you’ve probably noticed, we’ve been recommending a lot of homemade pesticides that can be made and used at home. But what if you don’t have the time or inclination to put your own creations together? You can still get rid of spider mites easily by mixing 2 cups water with 2 tablespoons dish soap (yes, regular old liquid hand soap will work) in a spray bottle.
This mixture is safe for all plants and insects, so it won’t harm any other creatures on your property—which means your garden will remain healthy while also getting rid of these pests!
To use this natural pesticide spray:
Mix together and apply to plant using a spray bottle.
Spray the underside of leaves with this mixture every 2-3 days until mites are gone.
