I have just lost my cucumber plants in the greenhouse due to red spider mite. I sent off for some live insects which eat the mites but the silly suppliers took two weeks to send them and by the time they came today, they plants had died. I phoned the company and they admitted to having missed the post two days later. I have spread them on the pepper and tomato plants just in case but am inclined not to send off for this type of pest control again. Has anyone else had this trouble?
