Orchard Buttermilk Spray

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.
