Any ideas for eco-friendly treatment options, to avoid spraying for spider mites (arborvitae) and apple scab (crabtrees)?

Thanks in advance.

It's not that you have to avoid spraying, it's that you need to spray things that are organic. Foliar feeding with a dilute mix of Garrett Juice and orange oil should do it. Howard recommends doing it every three days for three applications. Here is the library page about it.

Look up each pest by name in the Library and you're bound to find an entry that gives you the life of the insect and the treatments.
