What I use is: 3 teaspoons Spinosid, 2 teaspoons Malithion, 3 teaspoons of Neem Oil extract to one gallon of water. I spray after rains and about every 20 days unless I see pest or damage.

Why do you find it necessary to use Spinosid and Malathion? Isn't the neem oil sufficient to do the job?

I find that neem does not give complete control of leaf miner....without the Spinosid. The Malithion is for other cruitters...with this mix, applied after rains and on a schedule seems to keep my stuff pest free. Even leaf miners cease to be a detriment.

Thank you for answering my questions. Now that makes sense you doing that.
