The All New Spider Mite Control Plus
Safe, chemical free, effective pest control to the horticultural world.
For the control of:
- Spider Mites
And many other plant pests...
What is a spider mite?
Spider mites are less than 1 mm in size and can vary in colour. They lay small, spherical, eggs which are initially transparent and many species will spin webbing around the eggs to protect them from predators.
They live on various types of plant on the under sides of its leaves and cause damage by puncturing the plant cells to feed.
Spider mites are normally more prevalent in hot, dry conditions. Spider mites can hatch within 3 days, mature in as little as 5 days and the female spider mite can lay up to 20 eggs a day and live to around 4 weeks. This means one mature female mite can spawn a population of a million spidermites within a month.
How Spider Mite Control works?
It works by a physical means blocking the breathing holes of the red mites and insects causing death by suffocation. Any spider mite eggs are unlikely to hatch due to their encapsulation within the medium and their obvious inability to transpire successfully into an adult spidermite.
To apply, mix 25ml of SMC Plus to 1 litre of water, spray plant completely with a fine mist.
Why use Spider Mite Control?
SMC Plus is made from a blend of plant extracts, harmless to children and pets, safe to use on edible fruit and vegetables as well as ornamental plants.
SMC Plus will not harm beneficial insects as it only kills insects that come into contact with it before it dries. This means that insects that are introduced as biological controls or naturally occuring can carry on working almost without interruption.
