Yet a further update...
The ivermectin spray solution does not appear to by phytotoxic as I have
sprayed it on my brug and the other plants that were in contact with it
including a phylodendron and umbrella plant. Sorry I do not know the latin
for those or even if I spelled them right. Anyway, the mites appear to be
no more and my brug which had lost many leaves to mite damage and Cygon
spraying (before I thought to use ivomectin) is leafing out again.
A very effective solution to my mite problems for $3. If you try this at
home remember to spray a few leaves first to test phytotoxicity, and of
course insecticides are poisonous so take some basic precautions. This
spray is less poisonous that some organic sprays out there and less than
most conventional insecticides without the nasty smell, so I think it will
become a important part of my IPM (Integrated Pest Management) program.
I'm interested in using Ivermectin in my garden. You said you did not
need anything to make it water soluble?, You just mixed 1.5mL of
Ivermectin with a liter of RO water?.
Is the Ivermectin you used 2%?
