Red Spider Mite

We discovered that we've an infestation of Red Spider Mite on our aubergines in the polytunnel. As we garden organically we'll be purchasing some predatory mites called 'Phytoselulus persimilis'. Will update the blog on our progress once they've been introduced...... in the meantime we'll try blasting them off the plants with strong jets of water every couple of days.
