hi mate. when its spider mites the harkers has to come out im afraid or chuck them out. :wallbash:

lost loads to them before i tried the harkers, theres the one made for pidgeon treatment called harkers harka-mectin with a pidgeon on the bottle, make sure its the spot on endectocide in a 5ml bottle. as theres other ones in the same looking box/ bottle. 

then there is one thats made for cattle, used on cows. that is allot cheaper too, but i forget the name of it now, but thats the one for best value for money.  doramectinivermectin, moxidectin  all work `Harker` mectin is just the brand name - If you live in a semi rural area as we do, you`ll find there is some resistance to these insecticides, probably from overuse/poor spraying methods.

I thought I'd updated this thread as the above mixture caused a few problems in the end. I treated another batch of plants and it nearly killed them all. I'm not sure if I got the mix wrong or left it on the plants too long before washing off/ I wouldn't recommend anyone use this now.

 

I got rid of my 3 year persistent mite problem using Floramite and I've been mite free for two months. My mites were resistant to Harkers and permethrin.
