When using spidex it can be helpful to spray down your plant with water to help the predatory mites to stick to the leaves. Then, gently tumble the container and shake out the mites onto the infested plant according to the following: 1-2 mites per infested leaf, 20-30 per medium sized plant, or 2,000 per 700 square feet.
