Does karanja oil kill beneficials too? I'm thinking of trying garlic spray for the first time, and I also read that cilantro/coriander tea repels mites. It's worth a try as I've only seen a small number of the spider mites so far. I've been watering from above *GASP!* and also from below to aim the water at the bottom of leaves this year, so far so good. The only tomatoes that didn't like this water treatment were my Japanese hybrid varieties like Momotaro and Odoriko etc. Leaves got funky fast, lost one plant. The other heirlooms are doing just fine.
