Spider Mites – Control on Tomatoes

Q: I know it’s a bit unusual, but I’m absolutely sure I have spider mites on my tomatoes. They’re also on some 4 o’clocks right next to the tomatoes and on my angel trumpets. I also have them on my Sauromatum (voodoo lilies), which are fairly prone to spider mites. I have no problem spraying the garden plants with something like Bug B Gone, but I’d rather check with you about what to use on the Tomatoes since spider mites aren’t the easiest thing to get rid of and I want to be careful about what I use on something that I’m going to eat.

A: Green Light Spinosad is labeled for use on edibles, so that would work fine for your tomatoes, as for the others Bug B Gone would work fine.
