Re: Kitty's mites


You have a miticide???  What kind is it Kitty?  You can adequately get rid
of them by forcefully spraying them with water.  Do it a couple three days
in a row and that should take care of it.  The live on the undersides of the
leaves so you have to get the hose at that kind of angle.
