Safer insect soap? Has fatty salts. Spinosad? I am not convinced it works on spider mites to and yes this is about aphids. I generally use Forbid 4F, essential oils, Bronners and a few others for spider mites. I may have some aphids now. They are supposedly also hanging around tupur and cloth pots. I sprayed with Forbid a few days ago but caretaker is there now. Thanks.
