Help Borer

  1. I have been having problems dealing with stem borers over the past 2 years, I first got them last year and this year they have come back and hit hard. I’ve treated my soil with de powder as well as killing all of them by hand that I can find. Trying to see if anyone else has had similar problems and any solutions.

  2. sorry to hear. I was just watching a video the other day about them....nasty bastards. Talked about a few times throughout the lecture but a good chunk around the 44-45min mark

  3. Apparently, the stress from borers isn't all bad! :coolalt: The borers can cause more branching leading to more buds being produced (increase in seed productivity means more buds, but yours won't be seedy.)

    Apparent increase in biomass and seed productivity in hemp (Cannabis sativa) resulting from branch proliferation caused by the European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis).
