Hi all,

I'm new to this forum, I don't have a garden, but.... I do have a window box-sized balcony with four potted conifer trees in it, that are being eaten alive by red spider mites.

The best insecticide for it is Provado Systemic, but it's not available in Ireland.. or is it? Can anyone advise me where I can buy this insecticide (I like the sound of systemic, the idea of a plant sucking up the insecticide like a medecine is cool).

I've seen pictures of a Provado spary too on the net. So where can I get it? And if it's impossible to buy in Ireland, who are the most reliable suppliers in England, so I can order it online?

Thanks for reading this.

Razz

provado is not approved for sale in Ireland. I know from experience you can get it in the North, there are other systemic insecticides on the irish market for sale, a well known one being Rose Clear.

Thanks Gareth for that. Is Rose Clear as good as Provado?
