Killing russet mites with Forbid 4F Ornamental Insecticide Miticide

After treating the bottom and top of leaves/stems with Forbid 4F will it kill the eggs as well or will I need to treat a second time and if so how many day after the first treatment will I need to treat again to kill the life cycle of the russet mites?

Answer:

Forbid 4F Ornamental Insecticide Miticide will not affect the eggs as they are pretty protected.  If heavy insect populations persist, then you can retreat after 14 to 21 days, if needed. Please remember to give the product time to work and do its job and follow label instructions at all times for use rates and retreatment intervals. You should also rotate miticides every 2-3 applications to a different class/group to prevent resistance issues.
