  Welcome back, Derek!!    Have'nt had the mites, but BIG palm-weevil larvae, deep fried are GOOD!   I also wanted to give a recipe or two for green iguanas (stewed in port wine, or curried) to the folk at Fairchild Gardens in Miami, where they are  BIG and have become a very common pest in the gardens, but they declined.   Just get a few W.Indian gardeners, that will do the trick, they also control armadillos.

  Be well,


  Julius>>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.
