Is Baythroid advanced insect killer for gardens effective against two-spotted mite and tea-tree mite?

My Camilia Japonica is affected by what I believe is a two-spotted mite with spreading bronzy centre around the main leaf vein.

Flowers and Ornamentals • Pests

There are a wide variety of mites that can affect our garden plants. Baythroid is not registered for two-spotted mite. Two-spotted mites (also known as red spider mites) are best managed with 'Yates Natures Way Herb and Vegie Spray', an insecticidal soap.  

Unfortunately, there are no registered products for Camelia Tea Mite. A light prune, regular watering and fertilising will help the Camelia recover from mite damage. We recommend 'Yates Thrive Natural Roses & Flowers Organic Based Pelletised Plant Food' to strengthen your Camelia and promote beautiful flowers.
