  1. I thought my plants had them all along but i noticed it bad today when i looked at my plant and at the top the mites are all over it (FUCK!:mad:)
    Im still veg, for a while, but i need to fight them off, can i flower and harvest with spider mites? what harm will they do to the buds? For Fightimg them and killin them, how do i do this?? im going tomorrow to lowes to look for some pest controll for spider mites. is there anything i can do to knock them off?
  2. i just when in and sparyed with a jet stream on every leave (underside) and gave them a nice mist, it knocked 70% of them off, but i didnt kill them i dont think
  3. Ok i looked in the Sick plants and realized that this needs moved to the that section lol

    so far read there

    Solution - Early detection of spider mites, before damage is noticed, is VERY important. The tiny spider mites can be detected only by a full and thorough leaf inspection (on both sides of the leaf). If you find Spider Mites you must act fast and hit them hard with either a bleach solution (1 tablespoon of bleach to 1 gallon of 95F, pH balanced, water in a spray bottle.) or use a miticide with Abamectin <http://pmep.cce.cornell.edu/profiles...ectin-ext.html> or lindane <http://pmep.cce.cornell.edu/profiles...f-lindane.html> in it. That seems to work best. There are insect predators <http://eartheasy.com/grow_nat_pest_cntrl.htm> that can help in providing some CONTROL but this does not mean 100% eradication and in a consumable crop that is what we are after. The predator mite can help to control them if chemical sprays are not your thing.

    i dont think sparying bleach on a plant is a good idea, but however it is 1 tbs

  4. thatl be so dilute it wont have much effect on your plant at all, remember because of cars n shit plants have to put up with acidic rain somtimes, but thatbleach will kill those lil mites.
  5. einstein oil...works amazingly if you use it correctly
