I have been very lucky with pests. Since I went down the organics route and lots of diversity of micro organisms in the soil, it has eliminated almost all my pests. I think it creates an environment they don't like much, or too much competition for food. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I always keep my grow space clean, and disinfect it between grows.

yeah...I doont believe there is a KILL ALL product out there..




for those that run c02 in sealed rooms. nothing can live in 10k ppm of c02 for an extended period of time. do it once a day for 7 days to make sure you kill any eggs/larva that haven't hatched yet.

I have used CO2 to try an extradite mites...I killed many, but many survived, plus it seemed to yellow my plants up

I dont run Co2.. Maybe i should but not likely in the current scheme of things...
I sprayed again tonight...lights off now letting them dry..
I ran the Avid..Gonna extend the veg a little ...Hope its all good ?
Looking at80- 82 day temp and 66-68 sleep temp.. This gives me a three day turnaround on the larvae...so was looking at one more spray in 3 more then start thinking about when to move out//if to cut clones to keep strains..


The sn209 goes directly in the resi ?
I was gonna use it for this tray of kids as they move up and out to flower..

It has to go directly to the roots, so I would say yes. I grow in soil so I added it to the soil.

I am organic so don't use all the stuff you are using, but the spray is only as good as the sprayer. You need to put a piece of paper over the dirt so when you tip the plants over it won't fall out. You have to get the underside of each leaf. and the top of course. Don't miss one leaf. Follow the directions on the label exactly. My 2 cents.

@Rosebud, what about some ladybugs? I heard from a questionable source that is a natural way to control the mites?
Do you have any experience with ladybugs?

ladybugs will help control the growth of pets, but not eliminate them, just my experience

I don't think lady bugs will help much at this point. It is the larva of the lady bugs that really eat large amounts of insects. If you are infested it is way too late for beneficial insects. Good luck to you!

If you don't see any more mites or unhatched eggs and you are adding sns 209 you should be ok. I kept adding it untill a couple weeks into flower because I did not want to use any sprays during flowering. Just keep a close eye out, There are probably some hanging out in the nooks and cranny's.

mites have a 3 day cycle..so if your treating every 3 days for 2 weeks you will win the battle...here is the video I did when I did a co2 with dry ice...hope this helps
