When I had russet mites, I got Avid- and read the whole booklet cover to cover. Near the end of it, they mentioned that its effectiveness can be extended by the use of a horticultural oil- soooo, I whipped out my bottle of Azamax. Whaddaya know, it's a horti oil!
1 gallon of warm water- to help it emulsify
Spray until wet. It did the russet mites dirty, maybe it can help you.
Do this three times at intervals of two weeks or so, see how it does for you.
Then, post and tell us!
hey dude, so i have just finally figured out that i have russet mites after a long painful week or trying to figure out what was going on. but now that i have the problem identified, i have a question. Did you fully get rid of your russet mite problem by using avid and azamax? i went out and bought some avid and i was told to go and buy some florimite and forbid to rotate through with the avid so the mites dont come resistant. so my question to you is, did your mite problem come back after your treatments with avid/azamax? (mainly cuz i dont want to buy the forbid or the florimite cuz its expensive as hell) thanks
