Hmmm. Deep-fried spider mites could be the solution to the world's
hunger problem. I wonder if Julius has tried them in cornflour. Perhaps
a good beer batter. (Yes, I am just back from the home of fish and
chips). derek

Spider mites - get some water with a little soap - just to break the 
surface tension, and mix cornflour in, when this is sprayed on and 
dries, it cases the mites in a layer of cornflour, they can't breath and

die. Great method! Works on aphids also.
