    I'd be more focused on fertilizer to push new growth.
    And don't do any more shearing on them. That's only doing more harm than good.

    P.S Merit isn't labeled for Mites, as they're not a true insect.
    Talstar is a good crossover insecticide/miticide.

    I did put down 10-10-10 about a week a go. Do you suggest anything different?

    Can I mix talstar in a bucket and pour it around the tree so it is absorbed as a drench. Does it have to sprayed on the folaiage? Also does it will the eggs as well?

    Because mites are most damaging in your situation. I suggest you pass on bifenthrin & use a miticide. It may cost you more but it will perform better for you.

    I already ordered some talstar / bifenthrin. I read a lot about it, seems to be good for mites. I am sure there is stronger chemicals but this one seems to be on the safer side. Do you have any suggestions in case an alternate is needed?

    Floramite SC if it's still labeled for residential.
