Read this on another forum and thought it was interesting. I dont have a spider mite problem (yet!) but those in CA may.

I can't wait for Spring to see if my systemic is working...
It ought to handle critters like those too...

I picked up a few extra Plumies at a garage sale the other day... They had a bad case of that orange speck'd rust on the undersides of the foliage... I sprayed w/ the systemic so I'm hoping I knocked it all off and it won't contaminate the others... Probably not since everything's pretty much sticks right now... Guy gave 'em to me in 3gal terracotta pots for $2 ea. What a deal.

Patience... the rest of Plumie world will come soon enough! :unsure:
