Hi all,
What can I use on my tomatoes to repel the spider mite attack ?

Pain aren't they. I don't use chemicals so would just give the foliage a good hard hose down - get right under the leaves. If you don't have the water, misting the foliage would be the go.
They really like it dry that's all.

If you have any wood ash it would help too - just sprinkle lightly around on top of the ground - acts as a miticide.

And foliar feeds might be the go for awhile - manure teas or fish emulsion - with some seasol if the plant is stressed.

Good luck

Hi Fran,
I will give that a go also I was wondering if molasses spray would be of any deterrent ?
