I'm fighting spider mites on a needlepoint ivy plant. I've read that Bifenthrin is the most effective ingredient for treating spider mites, but I'm having trouble finding a houseplant insecticide that contains that ingredient. Can anyone recommend a product?
I only use 2 sprays on all my house plants. Safer Soap and 91% rubbing alcohol. If you have a plant that has a history of Spider Mites, give it a Safer spray on a regular basis. Stay ahead of the bugs. Here that would be Citrus trees, palms, Diffenbachia, some Philo., Papaya, Bananas, Figs.
