Hi Bob,

We had a problem a few years ago with spider mite and used metholated
spirits mix at the rate of 75% water and 25% metho, pyrethrum or
confidor. Confidor not as savage on the plants, also you could try
vinigar and water, that worked for me on mealy bugs, they hate it.

Hope you have a bit of success.


P.S We havn't seen much on the fern net since the address was changed, i
was thinking it was to cold over there.
