Vegalab spider mite control is a biological pesticide that targets spider mites, pests known to feed on several hundred species of plants. These pests cause mottled leaves and often destroy the entire plant at a rapid speed. It works by attacking spider mites in two different ways. It blocks the breathing holes of spider mites, causing them to die from suffocation. It also causes reproductive disruption among female spider mites, which leads to infertility, eggs that do not hatch or mites that do not develop to an adult stage.
The formulation calls for a dilution rate of 1:500-1:1000 (depending on level of infestation). With five times the original concentration, the spider mite control drastically lowers the amount of product needed and therefore cost per application. As with the original formula, zero pesticide residue is left on the plants.
