Another spider mite article, courtesy of Isurus79...

https://extension.msstate.edu/sites/...007/bw0507.pdf

Along with a recommendation from him when looking for a bigger gun for spider mites: "Bayer 3 in 1 is probably the easiest to find pesticide containing imidacloprid, which is super effective against mites."

The struggle is real with these Catasetum spider mite magnets.

The article from Isurus79 and other articles, including the one I included below (in the application tips section), state that imidacloprid treatment can cause mite populations to increase, often at a very fast rate. This is especially frequent with the Two Spotted Spider Mite, but has also been observed in other mite species. The Bayer 3 in 1 has another ingredient that targets mites. Imidacloprid by itself can exacerbate a mite problem!

Mites rapidly become resistant to pesticides. Effective products need to be rotated frequently if used at all. Mechanical means of control do not lose effectiveness with time.

Bifenthrin is a miticide.
