Cucumber and spider mites

Cucumber and spider mites

And now Christmas smells again in the little mist bench ??

Actually, I can not at all snatch the smell of carnations, but the other day I came across an idea of sprinkling carnations around cucumber plants to keep the spider mites away.

Not surprisingly, spider mites apparently cannot snatch the smell of carnations either. And on the web you can find instructions on the use of cloves oil as a biological control of mites etc. So it must be tried - especially when a bette bucket of predatory mites now costs DKK 195 plus postage.
