i use to use neem oil to kill those little bastards, found out after 6 applications in 3 day intervals ( thats how long it takes for the eggs to hatch ) it didnt do shit. bought azamax watered with it and sprayed the leaves the same day, sprayed them every 3 days for 2 weeks and watered with it twice. everyone of those bastards is gone. pretty spendy for a small bottle but shit it works.
What this member has said is most commonly true for all that acquire a spider mite infestation. If you continue any research about this, you will regularly see that is takes a variety of treatments to do away with them. Neem is great to use, but more so in combination with other treatments. Spider mites quickly become immune to Neem and other forms of pesticides. My best advice is to either order Predatory mites, or the Azamax or Azatrol or something comparable. Be ready for a long-winded fight with using just neem. In a short time, you will admit defeat with using only neem. If money is tight, rosemary oil is also said to help. You can find at a health food store or a GNC. Everything I have read says to hit them one week with one treatment and then the following week a treatment of another kind. Good luck with it, as we all know, this is one where you really need it.
