Heat room to 120 F, fans and AC off, lights on as heat source. May have to add more lights or space heaters to reach 120F. That will kill mites.


    How soon after spraying spinosad on Moms can I do the heat treatment...I read somewhere earlier in this thread that the heat treatment can have ill effects if the plants have been sprayed recently.

    I tried heat treatment on my flowering gals, my room has very high ceilings i could only get up to 100 on some temps and 90 on the temps at plant level so I will need more space heaters.

    Thanks for all your help and info and responses, I've started at the beginning of this threat and have been taking notes and reading ever page I'm on page 90 and still going. Thanks for all your work into this!

Using them in veg would certainly be a good "preventative", but they will starve without food, so if there is no infestation present, you would have to feed them. They like to eat pollen also.

    how many square feet would 5000 be good coverage for?

    if you got duds they are most likely fucked. some strains with never recover so you might end up chucking them in the end.

    Forbid 3ml a gallon mixed with Indicate 5....3 days later....Avid 2.5ml per gallon mixed with Indicate 5.... 3 days later Spinosad 60ml per Gallon mixed with INdicate 5.... 2 days later Triple Action Neem Oil mix per label DO NOT Use with any wetting agent....2 days later Azatrol or Azamax 30ml per gallon mixed with Indicate 5..I like Neemix 4.5 way better then Azamax or Azatrol... Azasol would be awsome too....

    Anyways...this seems kind of overkill right? FUck no... these bastards are crazy and do die on contact from Miticides...they take a week or two to fully die off...thats why we add the Spinosad and Triple Action Neem Oil...both are contact killers to those fuckers...and the azadirachtin just puts the icing on the cake ....

    Spend the money now and avoid the damage then truely cause...they are selective in what plants they toast ....and sometimes they will let it ride out till the end...like I said evil... Use all the above products and you will be clean from any Bastard from Mite family.

    Good Luck and dont be scared to pull out the chems on these dudes..they will not die any other way

    Is this still you BM methods? anthing new added or any of those deducted.

    Do i Do this everyday? 325 mb per gallon every feeding?

    They are not eggs.
    This has been explained with photos many times if you do even a little reading. Or just Google "broad mite eggs". Plenty of pictures.
    Once again Retro

    I have googled broad mite eggs, thats why I told him its not eggs.

    I have tried to research this orangeish mite I asked you about but i dont get any info. Im pretty certain it's classified as microscopic but i can see it. Only info i get on that mite color is spider mite but i certainly do not have those. So basically all im asking is are there orange broad/cyclamen/russets?

    Im considering buying pure salicylic acid instesd of aspirin. I use 3 325mg tablets per gallon. So I could maybe substitute 1 gram per gallon of 100% salycilic acid instead.
