What can I use to treat red spider mites

I've tried both Mavrik and Pyrethrum but it's difficult to tell which was working better. They are currently infesting cherry trees (stella, morello, starkrimson), fig tree (black genoa) and peach (trixie dwarf). I'm a little reluctant to spray too much pyrethrum in case it interferes with new growth. Thanks, S.

Hi Shaedo,

Yates Natures Way Herb and Vegie Spray Yates Nature's Way Vegie & Herb Spray Concentrate can be used safely on fruit trees for mite control. This soap base insecticide works by dehydrating the insects. Its is also a good general purpose insecticide that you can use for the control of many other insects and no witholding period applies.
