How it Works:
Spider mites destroy plant cells by sucking out their contents and SNS-217™’s unique formula works by providing a barrier which is harmless to the plant, but fatal to the mites. The natural salts from fatty acids derived from Rosemary extracts disrupt the insect cell structure and permeability of its membranes. Cell contents then leak from damaged cells and the spider mites quickly die. Some of the components of SNS-217™ are also absorbed by the plant and then suppress the life cycle of the mites. SNS-217™ Spider Mite Control kills the spider mite eggs as well by coating the eggs with an oily shield that disrupts the respiration to the egg; therefore no hatching will occur, they will just dry out Our Product has been tested in our lab on delicate new growth, clones, tomatoes, roses and other plants.
Directions for Use:
Spray directly onto insects and infected areas until thoroughly covered. Complete coverage of all plant tissue is necessary for control. Make sure to spray under the leaves where spider mites hide and lay their eggs. To reduce the chance of burning do not use under direct sunlight or grow lamps. One thorough application is usually enough, but heavy infestations may require a few more. Use on a 7-14 day schedule for preventative maintenance.
