Hello Everyone... How's it going? It's been quiet while the plummies are sleeping.
I've been looking around for dormant oil, but i've found neem oil, Hi yield dorment spray. Hetty can you post me a picture I would like to see how it looks like? I'm having spider mites problem with my plummies in storage any solutions?

First solution is to put in a fan, it is the still air in a storage area that helps the mites breed. There are many varieties of dormant oil, and just check that it says for application during the dormant season.

Thank you Hetty I'll try that first.
Horticultural oil is mostly on the shelves what is it?
I'll go back and check for dormant season only.

Yes it is a horticultural oil but especially for use in the dormant season. Google will tell you a lot more than I can Smiling
