The spider mites are back here as well with a fury. The recent rains have done more to help than anything else. I have used everything but the big pesticides. I am hitting them with H2o2 (6%) and harvesting as fast as I can. I know there will be many that arnt ready...but I dont see that there are many other choices. Next year I will be using Zeal
Just a single application per season and its regestered for hops.
