Until the possibilities of prevention and folk remedies have been exhausted, do not buy “poisons”. If one recipe does not help, try another, good, there are many of them.
Spider Mite Prevention
Ticks hibernate in the soil, therefore it is important to deep plow in the fall, and in the spring - to start cultivating the land as early as possible.
Do not forget about regular weeding of aisles. The fact is that the mites that appear first populate the weeds, so the fight against them must be waged even before emergence of cultivated plants.
Change the soil regularly in the greenhouse.
Increase the dose of phosphate fertilizers - it destroys wintering pests.
Observe crop rotation.
Remove and burn plants with signs of damage.
Concentrated Soap Solution
You can use this tool both at home and in greenhouse conditions. To do this, grate 200 g of household soap on a fine grater and dissolve in 10 l of warm water. Insist 2-4 hours, stir until smooth and spray the plants. Household flowers can be wiped with such a solution using a soft cloth. Flowers are left alone for 3-4 hours, and then it is better to wash off the soap.
2 Art. l dilute alcohol in 1 l of water and spray damaged plants.
Repeat the procedure weekly, and with the active development of the tick, every 2-3 of the day. If there is no alcohol at hand, then you can use vodka - increasing its share in water 2-3 times.
Infusions of plants from spider mites
Infusion of plants helps to cope with the spider mite.
Dandelion. 400 g of leaves pour a bucket of water and insist a day. Filter and spray the affected plants with a sprayer. Repeat the procedure the next day.
Horseradish. For this infusion, the aerial part of the plant is used - we fill the bucket with finely chopped leaves and stems by a third and add water to the top. We insist 3-5 hours. After filtering with a sprayer, we process damaged crops. If necessary, a second procedure is carried out in 10 days.
Makhorka. 0,5 kg of leaves chopped, pour a bucket of warm water, leave for a day, then filter and spray the plants. For better adhesion add grated soap to the 50 bucket of liquid.
Garlic. 200-300 grind cloves and pour a bucket of warm water. Allow to infuse 5-6 hours and after filtering, spray the plants from all sides. You can repeat the processing after 2 days.
Lukovaâ Husk. 200 g of raw materials pour a bucket of warm (almost hot) water and, having covered, leave warm for 12 hours. Then squeeze the husk, and filter the infusion. Spray damaged areas so that the plants are wetted from all sides, including from below.
Potatoes. 1 kg of green aboveground parts of the plant are crushed and poured with a bucket of warm water. Insist 5-6 hours and strain, spray the plants. Reprocessing - after 2-3 days. In a similar way, a preparation is prepared from tomato tops.
Sagebrush. The infusion of this plant is a powerful and effective tool not only against ticks, but also a number of other pests, so it should be used as a complex tool. Pour 1 kg of dried in the shade of wormwood bucket of water, insist a day. Then strain and, diluting with water (1: 1), spray the plants. However, this infusion can not be processed plants with fruits intended for eating.
