Spray safe needs to be in direct contact with the mites and aphids to be effective, though they will disappear quickly after spraying, you will need to spray again if infestation is heavy.
Spider Mites. Very small, about 0.5mm, often brownish in colour but sometimes red. They attack the underside of the leaves first, later moving to the growing tips. In severe infestations, webbing (as in spider web) will be quite noticeable.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR: The first signs are tiny yellow pinprick sized light green later becoming yellow dots, which are feeding marks, on the top of the leaf surface. The mites and eggs can be readily seen on the underside of the leaf with a magnifying glass. On the shoot tips a substantial amount of webbing is usually present in severe infestations. If the mites get to this stage before you notice them, they will have already done considerable and irreversible damage.
Canadian Xpress Spray Safe is a non toxic MITE killer that can be used right up until harvest.
Aphids. Small (1-4mm) pear shaped slow moving soft-bodied insects. Can be white, black or various shades of green. They usually breed quite quickly and form colonies. Also occur on the leaves-usually underneath. They may have wings though most specimens in a population do not. Aphids suck the sap from plants.
Another species also attacks roots.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR:colonies of insects crowded on the growing tips (see pic below) or under the leaves, which may be curled and twisted.
Canadian Xpress Spray Safe is a non toxic APHID killer that can be used right up until harvest.
White Fly. Small (5-6mm), white insects that fly when disturbed. At rest, they are usually found on the underside of the leaf but may occasionally be seen elsewhere. Larvae are small (3mm) yellowish, oval shaped and immobile and found on the underside of the leaf.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR: Small white insects that fly when disturbed. In severe infestations, they produce spots of sticky honeydew that in time turn black from a fungus called sooty mould. Severe infestations can seriously debilitate plants.
Canadian Xpress Spray Safe is non toxic and will control whitefly nymphs and can be used right up until harvest.
