A GARDENER has introduced its simple two-part spray that keeps spider mites away from his plants.
He said applying the spray only takes a few seconds.
The gardener (@thefrenchiegardener) shared the tip with over 200,000 TikTok followers.
“If you see spots on your plants’ leaves, be careful, they could be spider mites,” he warned.
“They can do great damage to tomatoes, eggplants, cucumbers and many others.”
He explained that dry and warm weather is the perfect time to attract spider mites.
In a liter jar, he mixed two teaspoons of organic dish soap and half a lemon with water.
“Acidic water and soap damage their protective coating,” he explained.
He put the mixture in a spray bottle and applied it to the leaves of his plants and all parts of the plant.
After 30 minutes, he gave his plants a thorough water shower to get rid of the spider mites.
People used the comments to share their thoughts.
“I’ll try that,” said one commenter.
“I hate spider mites so much,” said another.
