Pentac used to be the standard industry spray for mites, but they
stopped making it. To my knowledge it is no longer available and has
been replaced in our spray rotation with something called Floramite from
Uniroyal Chemical. I am not sure where you would find this product on
line or in a catalog except through Hummert International(formerly
Hummert Seed) in St. Louis, Mo. Good luck.

Thanks for the info. I checked out Hummert International and they don't
have Floramite. But, I was able to locate sources via search engines, but,
my, it is very expensive, ranging from $200 to $350 per lb. Of course, you
can make a lot of spray applications from it, but it will take years to
finish 1 lb. for hobbyists like me. I wonder why they don't make it in
hobbyist sizes?
