    From experience I have found that if the borg get control of your plants they are fucked.....dispose of the plants and use a mite and insect bomb in the room. Clean it out, nuke it.

    Spray preventative measures from day one....eternally vigilant.

        cure against spider mites

        one more time
        let me give you some tested and plant friendly suggestions works on 100% against all kind of mites

        1. Tobacco's water - put in clean water 500ml (in bottle with cap) / (cut) around 20 cigars or 50 grams of cut tobacco for 24 hours - you can leave it on sunny place during the day to make the mixture as much stronger , spray the plant on next day with it , i mean wash it it must dive in water all leafs (the water should be super brown and it will smell as hell). you can repeat it after 2-3 days - after that procedure no living creature will try to eat your plant leafs proved

        2. Hot (spicy) water - same procedure but instead of water a hot chilly powder in water 500ml/1 spun powder - again 24h on sun in bottle - spray it again on next day , you can repeat procedure

        none of these 2 can harm the plant neither you but will keep all bug's away from the leafs

        hope it helps

          No,ive only had mites once and that was from a clone someone gave me that i didnt quarantine first,but i know ,many that have tried it,and not one time did it do the trick.Doesnt matter how many PPM it just doesnt work.Youd have to do it so many times.Say it did work. and killed the living mites,it wouldnt kill the eggs.Once the eggs hatch youd have to do it again,and not all eggs are gonna hatch at the same time,so it would be a cycle of using a boatload of CO2 and alot of wishing.You need something that kills the mites and destroys the eggs at the same time.If you have mites,i hope if you do ,you find something that works for you.I use Schultz 3 in 1 spray.Its organic and works great.I put a No Pest Strip in the room also to just keepup a preventive measure.Ive never had a problem after that.But ido spray the plants with the 3 in 1 every so often just not to give them a chance.Even if you dont have mites,its good to spray them anyway,just to be safe and not to give them bastards a chance of moving in without payin rent.

            Growing and Maintaining Predatory Mites

            Does anyone know how to maintain a population of predatory mites (I have phytoseiulus persimilis), so you don't have to keep buying new ones?

            These particular mites only eat spidermites (no pollen), so what is the procedure for keeping them alive in a box so I can use them next year? Do they go dormant for the winter or can they be made to go dormant?

            Comment




              free them in nature and buy new when the next period comes m8

              you can't keep them for half a year in box

                im sorry to.. differ with you, sir, .. but you are the caretaker.. you have always been the caretaker..

                errr what i meant to say is:

                a) healthy plants dont repel spidermites. spidermites LOVE healthy plants. the healthier the plants, the more plant juice they can suck and the faster they procreate

                b) the spider mite predators, i tried those on about 5 occasions in different circumstances - THEY NEVER EVER WORK. forget about them. they eat a few mites and then they die. you will have to maintain the PERFECT climate for them to do their job and reproduce. and even then they dont reproduce as fast as the spider mites, so you'll have your room infested no matter what


                what helped in my case was a whole boatload of pyrethrum and turning the fan off and letting it sink in for a whole day so that it would kill at least the live animals, and then a systemic agent for the eggs. i didnt care much at this point if they were eligible for human consumption, i just wanted to get rid of those things

                    The last time I had them, was last summer. I was working on the flowering room, so I was only vegging. Here's what I did.

                    I culled my mother plants down to the bare minimum, and kept what strains I wanted as little mothers in beer cups.
                    I washed and cleaned the floors and walls of room, and bleach mopped everywhere else I could.
                    I attached a spray hose to a water line which isn't softened at my utility sink. I gave the mother plants a complete shower tops
                    and bottoms of leaves twice a day for a week and a half. Anything which looked like eggs under jewelers loop, got squished.
                    I haven't seen them since.

                    Borg hate showers! There's only room for one dirty hippie around here, me.
                    Give them enough showers, and they'll look at you like you're the fucking Borg.
                    Ya gotta give it to them worse than they give it to you.

                      if nothing is in flower, you might be in better shape
                      i did fight the little pricks in flower, though it was only one plant
                      i got rid of them, and did harvest some worthwhile bud, but they did take their toll

                              this might sound a bit off. maybe..best i can figure is that i brought something in from the outside, under my fingernails, on my skin, clothes, the grapes or veggie garden, who knows..pest are really bad this yr. ,.. this kinda thing has never happened before, in all these yrs...everything was a breeze, no pests, plant probs of any kind..i was always so cautious about cross contamination...

                              live and learn and learn i have, thanks to y'all here @ icmag..hope all of you never encounter anything like this..shit just went to hell crazy fast.

                              cleaner than ever this time around and whole lot more preventive measures will be taken as well..this will NOT happen again!.
