Mites are arthropods that feed upon the sap of a host plant and spread to other plants, killing agriculture. Floramite is a miticide used on indoor and outdoor plants in nurseries, greenhouses, gardens and landscapes to eliminate infesting mite populations. The life cycle of a mite is 21 days. Floramite lasts for up to 28 days, providing a long contact period so that mites at the egg, larva, protonymph and adult stages all die. Applying Floramite at the first sign of a mite infestation helps control the situation before it spreads to other plants.
Pour one gallon of water into a clean bucket. Dip a pH test strip into the water to test the pH level. Your goal is to achieve a pH level between 5.5 to 6.5. Apply a pH solution that adjusts the pH of the water, if necessary. The solutions are know as "pH up" or "pH down" solutions. Re-test the pH of the water to make sure it has a 5.5 to 6.5 pH level.
Pour 1/2 gallon of pH-adjusted water into the spray tank. Add 1/2 tbsp. of Floramite to the spray tank. Tighten the nozzle onto the spray tank and shake the contents to dissolve the Floramite.
Fill the tank with the remaining 1/2 gallon of pH-adjusted water. Shake the mixture to ensure that the Floramite and water combine. Spray the mixture onto plants.
