    Dear Rudy, not being in Belgium I have no idea what is available to you. Might I suggest a trip to your local nursery, chat up the people there and find out what they have had any success with. I am sure they will cheerfully sell you some.

    If mites hand soap no scent will kill them Basis super fatted soap works has to be used every 3 days for 3 weeks they have a short hatch cycle a lot of the sprays listed for scale and other bugs won't get them they are a member of the spider family . If you can get Safers insect soap spray it will kill them . The industrial strength mite killer is Keltane but should not be sprayed indoors . Gin
