Peppermint oil for spider mites

I’ve been battling spider mites again on my grow. Part of the problem is I won’t use chemicals to control them. After a bit of research I have found out peppermint oil is toxic to these critters. 4 drops of oil, a teaspoon of washing up liquid and 6 fluid ounces of water in my pump sprayer kills these pests stone dead with zero harm to my plants. I repeat daily if need be until I can see no more. Each time I check my plants if find the odd straggler I spray again. It’s definitely working as I am finding more dead ones now than live ones


Does it make your buds taste minty fresh?


My first grow using it so I will keep you posted on that one :face_with_monocle::thinking::thinking:
