ladybugs for spidermites?

  1. im curious, has anybody successfully gotten rid of an early spidermite infestation with ladybugs only indoors? mine always die off within 2-3 days and theres still some mites left.

    and is there anywhere that keeps predatory mites in stock, that i can just walk into and buy? i hate buying bugs online, always have bad experiences.
  2. In my experience, ladybugs are a no-go for the indoor garden. They may eat some of the mites, but not enough and not in time. They just cant seem to stay away from the light either so casualties are high. Not to mention the fact that you'll be cleaning up dead bugs for the next couple of seasons.

    For mites pre-flowering, use a fogger. Gas those bastards out.

    Once you start to flower, use AzaMax every 2 weeks up until harvest.

    Good Luck
  3. Spiders are the way to go and neem oil but neem oil may kill the spiders too google it.
