Well, the spider mites would flourish due to lack of predators, thanks to the Sevin. I had hops in the greenhouse last year, bombed everything with Sevin, ended up with nothing for my troubles. Spider mites destroyed the plants pretty much. Outside, the predators would eventually return and get the mites.(I think)
