No, I havent tried them but I am just about too. I have lots of plants in my
flat (= apartment for all those in the US!) where I am more reluctant to go
spraying insecticides around (my flatmates complain.....). So I figure
Phytoseiulus should be the answer. I have a number of commercial growers as
friends so should be able to get a sample from them to try. The thin leaves
of Remusatia in particular seem to be exactly to the red spider's taste!
Anthuriums fortunately dont seem to suffer as much.
