  • Bug Blaster & Spider Mites

    Created by Linfei Brown on

    I’m so frustrated with spider mites destroying my tomato plants. I see you have Bug blaster. If I blast the plants with Bug blaster, it just knock the mites on the ground not actually kill mites, correct? If so, will they get back to my plants? Actually, how do they get on the tomato plants? Do you have other suggestions?

    Thank you.

    Hi Linfel –

    Pest insects are often fatally traumatized from the force of the Bug Blaster and do not return. In many cases, all stages of the pest are eliminated (egg, larva and adult). For heavy infestations use the Bug Blaster every 3-5 days.

    Azamax and SNS217 are two other products that we often recommend for controlling spider mites. I’ve included several links below that should help.

    AzaMax (Azadirachtin)

    SNS 217

    Bug Blaster

    Best of luck!
