My cacti have red spider mite - systemic pesticide was advised. Is there Yates product available?

I would really prefer something to put into soil as treatment for my indoor cacti as well as preventitive care and not topical spray. Also, can scale on cacti (indoor and outdoor) be treated with the same product?

Answer: Unfortunately there are no systemic miticides available which can administered through root application. The most effective way to control mites is to use Yates Mavrik which is a contact insecticide or Yates Pest Oil which smothers the pest but must contact the insect directly.
