spidermites

Discussion in 'Indoor Marijuana Growing' started by starvingstudent, Aug 19, 2003.

  1. i have a serious spidermite problem the problem is that i cant get rid of them i have tried various products currently using BANG! which seems to be getting the job done, does anyone know of anything else that spidermites thrive on as i have cleaned and disinfected everything in the area and once i start new plants (not just returning old plants to same spot don't worry im not that slow) the spidermites seem to be coming back in full force within a day.
    NEED HELP thanks

  3. 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/extoxnet/24d-captan/abamectin-ext.html> or lindane <http://pmep.cce.cornell.edu/profile...n-methylpara/lindane/insect-prof-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 <http://www.hempcultivation.com/420/images/nursery_images/predator_mite.jpg> can help to control them if chemical sprays are not your thing.
