Red spider mite on cucumbers
« on: October 12, 2017, 09:58 »
When I clean my greenhouse what's the best thing to use to ensure this pest isn't lurking in any corners.

Lots of them on Internet, e-bay, plus I think most of the seed suppliers sell them, as well.

Shop around though some places are asking silly money
