So… yesterday I got out the 4L pump sprayer, mixed up the concoction that my friend Justin suggested that I use to kill off my thrips, and gave my plants a soaking. For the convenience of my 4L sprayer, which seems to be the most common size, I reworked the recipe to make 4L.
4L warm water
20 mL sunlight dish soap
5 mL Eucalyptus Oil (optional for spider mite)
12 mL of Neem Oil
60 mL of light Mineral Oil
Since I’ve never done this before, I’m learning as I go. Justin suggested that I respray every 5 days to ensure I nail the next generations. However, one thing he didn’t tell me is how many times I need to spray before I can safely say that they are gone! So if you’re reading this post… can you leave a comment with regards to how long I need to spray! THANKS!
