Q&A Home

Kenneth writes,

Will your red mite spray end this insect including its nest/home?

I have red mites on my sidewalk, front steps, around my swimming pool, on the plastic chairs and other outside furniture.


Fertilome Red Spider and Mite Spray can help you kill the spider mites but it is mainly meant for use on plants. Red Spider and Mite spray will only kill the mites that are present when you do the actual application and it will not be transported back to their nest or harborage areas. We recommend you use a product that will leave a residual such as Talstar P. Talstar P can last for up to 1 month outdoors and can be used in all of the areas indicated except for the furniture. Talstar P will not be transported back to their harborage either but it will keep killing the mites that walk on the treated area for up to one month.
