• Orchard Buttermilk Spray

    Hotdog Doughboys-b101-orchard-spray.jpg Spider mite infestation in a home orchard can be devastating. Here's a very simple old-time recipe to kill spider mites and prevent them from taking over.

    You'll Need:
    Use this for heavy infestation of spider mites in an orchard.
    1 lb white flour
    5 gallons water
    1/2 cup buttermilk

    Dump the flour into a 5 gallon bucket and then add water, mixing well as you add it into the bucket, add the buttermilk and again mix well.

    Transfer the spray into a pump style insecticide sprayer & apply on a weekly basis to your orchard. This works well on flowers such as hibiscus, azaleas, etc.

    (Keep an eye on the mite population, you should have less than 3 per leaf)

    This works well on spider mite infestations on fruit trees in your backyard.
