SNS-217 Spider Mite Control
SNS-217 Spider Mite Control is made up of 100% pure Rosemary botanical extracts. The botanicals are all food grade GRAS (generally recognized as safe) materials. SNS-217 Spider Mite Control is exempt from EPA registration under minimum risk pesticides exempted under FIFRA section 25(b).
How it Works
Spider mites destroy plant cells by sucking out their contents and SNS-217's unique formula works by providing a barrier which is harmless to the plant, but fatal to the mites. The natural salts from fatty acids derived from Rosemary extracts disrupt the insect cell structure and permeability of its membranes. Cell contents then leak from damaged cells and the spider mites quickly die. Some of the components of SNS-217 are also absorbed by the plant and then suppress the life cycle of the mites. SNS-217 Spider Mite Control kills the spider mite eggs as well by coating the eggs with a oily shield that disrupts the respiration to the egg; therefore no hatching will occur, they will just dry out. Our Product has been tested in our lab on delicate new growth, clones, tomatoes, roses and other plants.
SNS-217 Spider Mite Control can be used on a wide variety of plants, vegetables, and even trees. When applying the product take caution not to spray any buds on the plant, in doing so this could result in burning the buds sprayed. SNS-217 Spider Mite Control can be sprayed on fruits, vegetables, and plants varying from; apples, apricots, beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, cherries, chives, corn, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, parsley, fuchsia, roses, flowers, house-plants, etc.
SNS-217 is fully biodegradable and is not toxic to animals. When used asdirected it will not reduce the plant's metabolism.
SNS-217 Spider Mite Control comes in a ready to use 32 ounce (946.3 ml) spray bottle with a unique any direction sprayer. Our unique sprayer allows you to spray at any angle you choose. Since spider mites hide on the under side of leaves this sprayer will have no problem at all getting those hard to reach spots.
One thorough application is usually enough, but heavy infestations may require two, as the eggs can be a bit hardier, so we recommend an additional application in these cases. When it's hot, and dry, mites are just a breeze away from your plants. Just one spray every few weeks will protect your crop from this near invisible pest. Whether you grow indoors or out sooner or later the mites will find you, get them before they get your plants!
