Susan.... yes, mites overwinter here. A lot
of ornamental trees - Golden Chain Trees, Pussy Willow - are notorius for being
overrun by mites in August when it normally gets hot and dry. I'm not sure
in other countries about products, but here in Canada, I use AVID which it
great. It also requires a licence though. I've grown orchids for
years and mite control is essential. The Amorphophallus don't seem to mind
chemical sprays. I always spray in the evening so the sunlight is
weaker. Here, I always grow my Amorphs in pots as opposed to the
ground. And I use fresh commercial potting mixes, so I don't have the
nematode problems that other's mention (at least not so far).

Allan, you get mites on your plants
SW Ontario is a great growing area, protected by the many
large lakes. I was surprised the first time I traveled through, although
it was a higher latitude than where I lived, there were many crops like fruit
that can't be grown in my area. This was 20 years ago, before there were
as many cold hardy crops. Peaches were unheard of in Wisconsin at that
SusanPS. Michael is in Australia, folks.
