So I’ve found spider mites in my veg tent and have been working on eradicating them now for about 5 days.
I noticed them walking up my green coated wire tie downs.
My first course of action was to mix 1 TBSP of both Neem oil and Bonner’s soap in a quart of Ph 6.5 water and sprayed all plant top and bottoms and the soil and tie downs.
2 days later I followed up with 3% Hydrogen peroxide spaying all.
2 days later (last night) I sprayed them with Captain jacks deadbug 1 TBSP per quart.
This morning there are still some movement (easy -so to speak- to see them walking up and down the green coated wire tie downs.
This afternoon my lady bugs will arrive and will be adding a hundred or so into the tent. I will also be providing them with some food using bee pollen mixed in water in a lid for food.
Does anyone have experience using them inside a tent for spider mite control? Suggested food to mix up for them? To keep them healthy?
I ordered 1500 and will release them in stages over the next week or two. Will also put some outside in my garden and yard.
So far I haven’t seen any signs of them in the flower tent.
Thanks for any help
