    why the hell is this a sticky.... systemic pesticides do not leave plants overtime... bullshit... systemic pesticides leave plants over 20-30 days... contact pesticides leave plants instantly... bad info in the original post

    funny how floramite works and is approved for tomatoes but according to the first post isn't food safe... what the hell do you do with tomatoes?

    unless icmag is more about stroking egos than correct info this post should not be a sticky

      Dry ice co2 fogging???

      Anybody here try filling the grow box with co2 from dry ice for 10-20 minutes or so? I've heard that if the co2 is dense (not sure how many ppm's)the mites will not get enough oxygen & die.
      After dealing with the little pricks over many grows, I'm ready to give it a go since the only other outcome is positive for the plants! wish me luck!

        Just a small question do you think spider mite is over hypped to scare you into buying different products to eliminate summing that sure the plant should be able to sort out now if you attack a few generations of plants will not evoloution kick in and put its own defence for them,i allways hear the dreaded spider mite,is it as bad as we are made to believe many thanks Deidree barlow

              People who haven't actually dealt with a large bunch of spider mites on a large grow really shouldn't talk about them being weak in any fashion.

              these fucks can EXPLODE within a 2 day spread, look like nothing is there and then BOOM fuckin webs start appearing.

              these are my enemy forever

                My prized male plant in my mother room was just covered in cobwebs in less than 18 hours.

                I was amazed...and severely frightened for all of my mothers...

                I completely drenched my mom room with Floramite SC yesterday TWICE and I wake up this morning and find live spider mites on a plant...

                When I say drench I mean twice I laid them on their sides and flipped them 4 different directions to get every single speck of the plant.

                I just popped a pyrethrum fogger and I've been using spinosad since they first appeared on the one male.

                These things are evil...I'd have flipped out if they were ever seen in my currently flowering room...

                Can't agree with the poster quoted more. If you ever see these things immediately nuke everything over and over again.
                Below is a link to all of my grow reviews...there are a bunch so get off the clones, dive in, and find some new genetics to appreciate!

                  Ok, I may have possibly finally won...Spinosad, pyrethrum, pyrethrin, and Floramite SC flying everywhere every 2 days. I used a different pest control every 2 days for 8 days now. That is all 4 twice in short...

                  I am not on west coast with 'superbugs' resistant to everything and this is what it took to get it to the point where I 'may' have won. I still have doubts as live specimens were seen as late as 2 days ago and also after seeing these things massive reproduction cycle...

                  Screw the every 5-10 day BS every 2 days was all that seemed to anything and I consider my invasion a very light one...It started on only one plant and I immediately treated it.

                  I absolutely drenched my plants top to bottom in whatever I was using unless it was a fogger. Next time I will most likely dunk the entire plants in floramite in a 5 gal bucket...

                          spider mites can be a pain in the ass, congrats above to those who have won their recent battles. Just remember that hanging out with fellow growers and or allowing them to check your grow out is a big no no. Who knows what clones they just bought among a million other what ifs.

                          Another thing that worries me is going to collectives and possibly picking up b.s. bugs or shit from their plants there.

                          Almost feel like becoming the "plant man" a medicated version of a cat lady but never leave the grow room just incase I MIGHT bring in a new bug or issue.

                              Mites

                              Hey guys! I seemed to have what I thought was a small invasion on a few plants in my flowering tent. The mites seem to love the ChemD! I have other strains that seem to be holding up fighting them better. Within a day, I started noticing webs encasing a few of the buds on one plant. I have been treating the water w/ Azamax, & also Organicide alternetly every time I water. I think Azatrol works good, but the grow shop doesnt carry it anymore! The ChemD w/ the webs is about 2 weeks from flower, should I make an emergency cut tonight?-or should I try to knock em down for a week? Is the end product affected by the mites? Thanks for the help...
