Spider Mite infestation banished by ‘The Wizard’Posted: March 1, 2013
Spider mite infestations completely cleared in this feeback received today from ‘the wizard’ in Dublin, who used MiteShield twice for his .
I was a little skeptical about Miteshield at first. When my girlies came under attack I used three different products simoultaneously in an effort to save my crop, one of which was mite shield. The mites went away for a while but returned a few weeks later.
This time I was a little less panicked and used Mite Shield alone to try to fix the problem. To my delight and surprise the mites disappeared within two days and did not return for the duration of the growing season.
I use soil and follow organic methods to the letter in a relatively low tech setup. Based on my experience I would use mite shield again and recommend it to growers who want to maintain the integrity of their flowers and keep things chemical free.
Thanks very much for your feedback Mr. Wizard. We’re glad MiteShield’s magic worked for your spidermite problem. Enjoy the fruits of your labour.
Spider Mite Hygiene and Plant Stress
Spider mite control using MiteShield is simple and quick. It may happen if your plant is weakened somehow that it will need to be-reapplied after a number of weeks has passed. If this happens, make sure your plants have the adequate balance of nutrients and are not stressed in any way. Re-occurrence is a sign that the plant is stressed somehow. Since MiteShield works by building a plant’s resistance to the spider mite, if the plant is depleted or stressed somehow then re-infestation can occur.
Spider mite life cycle is one of exponential growth so it is essential to practice good hygine around your plants to prevent mites from gaining a foothold. Here’s some sensible advice about measures you can take to prevent an infestation from OrganicGardening.com.
