Spider mites and balcony garden

2017-08-10 08:34 #0 by: Evelina

My poor tomato plants finally started growing tomatoes. They aren't doing so well because they are infested with spider mites! My usual neem oil/ soap and water is not cutting it. Any solutions?

Go out an find some ladybugs to bring home. They will be jubilant when they see why you kidnapped them. :-)

I'm honestly not sure where to find ladybugs! Lol. I don't see them often in Sweden. In the US you can actually buy them at the store.

How can I use that emo? Mix it with water and spray it on the plants?

Yes. I mix natriumbikarbonat, såpa and water.

Underlined words in Swedish because you will buy the ingredients in Sweden.
