Question by angel_fish1791: Organic ways to get rid of spider mites on tomato plants ??
My tomatoes are doing great but a spider mite infestation has developed. I like to keep things organic and I’m having trouble getting information on ways to deter spider mites on tomatoes. I’ve heard that diatomaceous earth or salt water work through severe dehydration of the insects, will this also cause the tomatoes to shrivel and dehydrate? Does garlic water work well against spider mites?

Try this recipe. It works on a lot of different pests and even fungus:
10 drops dishsoap
1.8 ml cinnamon extract (about 1/2 tsp.)
2 cups tepid water
