How to eliminate mites on house plants?
Mites on plants: Wipe them down with diluted alcohol once a
week. Mites hate moisture, don't allow plants to stay dry all the
time, it's real difficult to kill all of them but you can control
them. I controled them on African violets by misting with tepid
water twice a day, also Neem oil is very good because it smuthers
the tiny mites. New ones hatch out in 5 to 10 days so you'll need
to continue this until they are controled. Spray with neem oil
every five days. You can purchase Neem II by Green Light from
hardware store or online. Or purchase 100% Neem oil online, a
Organic supplier. You can also, wash you plant off in the sink with
a fairly strong stream of water for the first treatment.
