okay well, I have a serious problem. My garden has fallen victim to one mean group of spider mites. I have tried several "home" remedies for them to no avail. I refuse to use a chemical as I would like to stay completely organic. I just released 1500 lady bugs in to the garden under some bug net but they just seem to all be going away! I have already lost one of my favorite Jalapeno plants and to the looks of it my only large American Sambucus is about to go as well! so I am all ears, if u got any organic ways of getting rid of these let me know. I also would like to know if any one has had a success with just using lady bugs. Thanks for the help in advance!
