No, the Bayer Advanced 12 Month Tree and Shrub Protect and Feed II Granules are not labeled for spider mites. Talstar P insecticide works very well on spider mites and is safe to use on Junipers. Talstar works well for both the mature and the immature spider mites. Talstar provides optimal spider mite control when applied during spring to mid-summer. Higher application rates and/or more frequent treatments may be required for acceptable spider mite control during mid-to-late summer. The addition of a surfactant or horticultural oil may increase the effectiveness of Talstar.
