Biomite is an organic, medium-risk biochemical miticide that has been formulated to control mites by inhibiting their ability to develop resistance to it. Since this a common downfall of many insect control products, it's obviously desirable to have a sustainable insecticide that can be used safely over multiple applications without losing its efficacy. While Biomite is terrific on its own, it can also be used in rotation with other miticides. In fact, it is compatible with most commonly used pesticides and fertilizers. This product has been registered for use on apples, cucurbits, hops, pears, grapes, nuts, stone fruit, and nursery and ornamental plants. Biomite is OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) listed, making it ideal for organic use and as part of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM program).

Complete instructions can be found on the Product Label.
- Add Biomite to an empty spray tank followed by water to half the required amount.
- Agitate the mixture thoroughly and then fill the tank with the remaining water. Thorough mixing is necessary for uniform coverage.
- For tank mixes, add the other pesticide or fertilizer products to the tank mix according to the directions for use on those product labels. Typically, the least soluble products will be added first followed by the most soluble products.
- Agitate mixture thoroughly and use immediately.
Biomite is most effective on low to moderate infestations early in the season. Apply Biomite as soon as mites are identified on the plants, or when conditions favor mite outbreaks. Do not mix Biomite with surfactants. It has been tested for phytotoxicity on a wide range of crops and ornamentals. However, since testing on all varieties of all crops and ornamentals is not feasible, test a small portion of the area to be treated for phytotoxicity before treating the entire area.
Biomite has been found to be compatible with most commonly used pesticides and fertilizers. It is recommended that you test for compatibility before using this product in a tank mix with other pesticides or fertilizers. To test for compatibility and phytotoxicity, mix a small amount of each product, in the proportions indicated in each products' instructions, in a small jar. Apply as directed and monitor for damage or reduced spray coverage.
Do not apply this product through any type of irrigation system.
