Horticultural Oil ~ Organic Spider Mite Control
Spider mites and other mites that pose a serious threat to hibiscus have always been hard to get rid of. You can clean the plant leaves, blast them with water, or use a chemical miticide to try to control them, but they are always an inconvenient pest that is difficult to control. Many studies of the use of horticultural oils for the control of mites have led to guidelines from many University agriculture extension services that recommend horticultural oil for spider mite control. Some studies have shown them to be as effective as many of the restricted miticides not available to the general public.

Horticultural oil is a highly refined petroleum or paraffin oil that is very light-weight. It is designed for use on plants and doesn't stain or burn them if used according to directions. What it does do is smother many insects, including spider mites. The light-weight oil mostly evaporates and does not remain on the plant more than a day. It can be used in a house and doesn't have an odor or residue that stays in the air. In our tests of this product we have found it easy to use, and highly effective against spider mites.

We are offering horticultural oil in three convenient forms. One is a ready-to-use spray bottle with no mixing required. The second is a concentrate that makes 25 gallons of solution for refilling the spray bottle. The third is a concentrate bottle that is attached to a hose end and used to spray larger numbers of plants in the yard.
