Tea slaughters black mite infestation =0 =D

Thread starter #1
Aloha from Alaska,

Had a wicked bad black spider mite infestation come home on my girl after she had to be babysat :'(
Started by removing affected leaves & sprayed her down with Dawn dish soap water which I also added to the soil for 2 days. Then I learned about this tea recipe:

"Use a homemade herbal tea.-If you want to make your own miticide at home, you can make a herbal tea by mixing a tablespoon of ground cinnamon, a tablespoon of ground cloves and two tablespoons of Italian seasoning in a quart of water.Bring the water to a boil, then take off the heat. Once it has cooled slightly add 2 tablespoons of crushed fresh garlic. Leave to sit until the water cools completely, then strain through a cloth or coffee filter.Add a squirt of dish soap to the tea, then pour into a spray bottle. Spray the underside of the infested leaves with the tea every three days over a two week period. This should effectively kill the mites.",
