How can I control dust mites on house plants?


Answer by  Serafinah (232)

Dust mites on houseplants is fairly common and can be easily controlled with a chemical spray, although I think that now there are organic and non-toxic alternatives as well. This is easy to find in your local hardware or nursery, and is simply sprayed onto the foliage of the plant.
