  [Aroid-l] Spider Mites
From: "D. Christopher Rogers" <crogers at ecoanalysts.com> on 2007.04.25 at 19:08:48(15584)

Anyone have a good method for dealing with spider mites? The keep
popping up in my friend’s greenhouse. They really seem to like Amorphophallus,
Xanthosoma, Alocasia, and Colocasia, ignoring everything else. He has been
using neem oil, but it seems to kill off leaves. He went to a weaker
concentration, which knocks down the mites immediately and saves the leaves,
but even after spraying twice a day for two weeks, they just pop right back up.
They appear to be the two-spotted spider mite.

Thank you in advance,
