Hmm... I don't. Where do you think that'd fit? Do I need to make a new forum for Gardening Problems?

OK, new forum is made. I went ahead and created an insect thread, so you can post there or you can start one for your particular situation.

I'm sorry I haven't been much help on your problem here, but it looks like you're in good hands with Stormy and Misti. It's not that I don't want to help, you're just dealing with something I've never seen!

OK, I'll need to figure out how to do that. Give me a few minutes...

Edit: OK, we're in the Pests forum now, as a shiny new thread. Thanks for the tip, Stormy!

Sorry for disappearing guys and gals! I went on a trip up to see my grandfather - he's getting up there in age so I'm trying to make as much time as possible to see him!

As far as my plants go, the day after I left the cat killed off my watermelons. My hubby killed the pine tree (not quite sure how; he said he watered it!!). Since I've og gotten back, we've had more casualties - the spidermites are back, AGAIN. *sigh* They are mostly on the blackberry plant and on one of the jalapeno plants. I pulled the jalapeno plant and threw it outside to help prevent further spreading, but I just can't bear to see the blackberry bush die!! I'm thinking miticide might be my only option. :( The spidermites have also gotten on the zucchini plants and the spinach. I cut off the most affected leaves on the zucchini plant and tossed the spinach outside as well since it wasn't growing, anyway. A few corn plants died due to under watering while I was away seeing my grandfather. The only positive things lately is that I brought my bell peppers back from near death due to the non-watering while I was gone, and I have a garlic plant that has taken off! I can't really blame my hubby though... he was miserable while I was gone. Poor guy. :( He's not used to being separated from me for long. Oh! And those flies... still here. :( The sundew is a fat and happy plant COVERED in gnats. The gnat problem has died back because of the non-watering and sundew. Still a few hanging out, but no where even near where the problem was at before.

Sorry for the wall of text!

Sorry, I haven't been following this thread. If you want something that is absolutely effective on the spider mites, look into Merit wp75.

Speaking of flies - the little flies seem to be... eating the gnats. At least, that's what it looked like... perhaps this information could help someone id them?
