I second the lady bugs…
You can try ladybugs or lacewings to keep their numbers in check, but eventually you might find ladybug larvae pupating on your main colas like I did...
Those larvae are the real hunter / killers!
im not to fond of havin lady bugs in the house
so far everything i tried foesnt work
insectidal soap, insecticide both branded products for this purpose but they keep coming even after repeated aplication
i even tried this recipe i found on yourube bought the pepermint and tree oil castill soap for the recipie it hasn't kill them 100/100
i know ladybugs would work great i just dont want to have a swarm in my house
You don’t want to spray those soaps on flowering plants past week 3 or so. You risk burning your pistils.
I also found that you really need to high dose that soap to be effective. I saw recipes online that recommended everything from 1tsp to 5 tablespoons per gallon of water. For me, one tsp didn’t do a damn thing. 5 tbsp was a bit excessive and plants showed signs of phytotoxicity. I’ve settled in 3 tbsp per gallon and it seems to knock them back. But it takes a few applications to get them under control. I do three or four applications, doing one every other day. You can rinse off the plants with water in between applications if you like, the residue comes off easily.
But again, I wouldn’t do this on plants in mid to late flower.
I fucking hate aphids. Worst pest of all of them IMO
Athena IPM and Lost Coast Plant Therapy can be sprayed in late flower. If you drench heavily though, it can make the buds consistency a bit odd, so go as light as you think you can get away with while still killing the bugs.
