Red spider mite and aphids

Postby tracie » Sun Sep 22, 2019 6:45 pm

This year I have had a infestation of red spider mite and aphids, this has destroyed all of my cucumbers, aubergines and peppers.

I tried spraying with a oil-soap mix but that did not work. I also had marigolds liberally planted in my Polly too, all to no avail.

I have now purchased 3 smoke bombs for the Polly as a last resort.Does anybody have any experience of using smoke bombs to kill off the bugs.

I once used a sulphur candle in my greenhouse. Never again, set every bit of metalwork corroding.
