thank you everyone for the great advice! I will be much more prepared for a showdown on the next run.
The habenaro spray outlined by 1diesel1 has eradicated the mites in two sprays! Cheap and effective!
although a bit Of work and sore on the throat but works very well!
Would you report back after harvest and let us know if you noticed any residual affects of the habanero spray?
It would be helpful to see follow up posts from folks who have problems. In fact, it would be great if there was a searchable tag that users could put on threads to give feedback about techniques that have been suggested by others, and implemented with either good or bad results.
Look at any given thread asking for help with a problem and you're going to see conflicting advice, or at least several different solutions suggested. It would be great if we could make it easy to search threads where the advice an OP was seeking actually worked for the OP.
