Re: Spider mites

The buzz around here is that just spraying with water is all that is
needed.  They inhale it and get pneumonia or something like that.
That's the standard info we give in Horticulture School, anyway.  I
don't have them, thank goodnessl  Just mealy bugs and aphids.

One of my office plants - I think it's a variety of croton - has spider
mites. This is my reward for taking in other people's unwanted plants I
guess. Anyway the thing is way too big for me to casually lug it outside
and spray it off (if I could find a hose outside, which is unlikely).
What's a good remedy?
I am not too excited about spraying insecticides in my office but I
might be able to find a hand cart to take it outside.
