    Here are 3 pics taken with a usb microscope, I'll say they are trichomes BUT Im not sure because I have some symptoms that lean towards broad mites.

    Yes! exactly that is exactly what i see and are those eggs or trichomes! I think trichomes but the symptoms are definitely undeniable and have me on edge...

    I just want to find these bastards and know i am looking at them.

    My symptoms just seem so much like borad mites.

    The pistils that turn orange and look burnt up also have the super long thin witch like claw leafs that curl under themselves surround those effected buds.

    Yo retro do you know if a slight orangeish mite could be the same species and the white ones i saw previously. I tracked this one down a clone i took from that plant and its even smaller then the whiteish one so tiny if it wasnt orange it wouldnt be visible.

Its definitely not PH i've been watching that religiously because when they were droopy I thought that was the issue, its not heat the temps have been perfect. No I am not spraying chems in flower, that is why I was consulting on here as to what my choices are for treatment in flower....earlier in this thread people say they sprayed Conserve SC until week 6 of flower and others say they used neem oil through flower which I was asking about on my post....


    so whats the consensus on the neem and spinosad?
    and then I was wondering about dunk methods for clones/cuttings....


    I'll try the aspirin.

    Thanks
    Personally the neem makes me sick to my stomach, but more then that didnt seem to do anything for me even with spider mites in the past. People seem to like spinosad but ive never used it. If its organic technically you can use it in flower, but I wouldn't myself. I would stick with the ogbiowar and mighty wash they can be sprayed any time really.. Another product that people swear by can be used anytime is NukeEm but ive never used it.

    Its always best to use these products as a dip, so any of these can be used in the clone stage and often is more effective with less dips vs sprays. Im sure just dipping them in pure RO everday would even be effective. But you will need to maintain mite prevention the whole grow.

    As far as riding the mites entirely the heat seems promising but i havent used higher then 115 at which point i saw mites walking around, next i will try 125 degree's.

    Has anyone found any info on treating broad mites with cold? I was thinking about it before and never found any internet links. I kinda forgot about it but became curious again after reading the thread about putting cuts in stasis in the refrigerator.

    Can cold temps in the 35-40 degree range kill broad mites?

Everything looks like trichomes, but I could be missing the mites and mistaking them as trichomes. But for weeks the plants were super droopy looking like symptoms of being overwatered but they definitely weren't over watered. Signs of nitrogen toxicity seemed present as well. i hit with Avid once and then again after 7 days....Now I am a couple weeks into flower and some of the white hairs are looking burnt or eaten and turning orange. And now some leaves are really obviously thin claw like leaves curling way under themselves. so it worries me these fuckers are still reining. I still cant identify any with the scope. I've never seen anything moving.

    I've read so many of the posts on this thread but I just want to be clear because theres so much information...

    What can i do or use to fight them in flower? Neem oil (up until what point?), predator mites...what else?

    The predator mites dont harm the plants?

    and also I read a bunch on the prevention of broad mites and doing a dunk on small plants.
    What is the dunk process? Is it the roots or the whole plant? and what mixture do you use...Should I just dunk Avid or do a forbid dunk as well....
    I have the same symptoms but am using NukeEm/ diatomaceous earth

    You arent spraying with avid at all in flower right? Ive just successfully healed my plant for the 2nd time from russets using 2 applications of mighty wash. Its the only thing that has worked for me so far. Plus ive added 325mg per gallon Aspirin to res as Retro advised and it seems to really help.

    With Mighty Wash and without


    Thats the first time, good plant became infested again and the mighty wash is bringing it back again, 115degrees didnt work nor ogbiowar on its own.

    Look for eggs, not mites. The eggs are easy to see under leaves. Cut off a few damaged looking leaves and scope carefully with a 100X scope and bright light. If you have mites, you will see eggs. Also, add 325 Mb. PLAIN (not coated) aspirin per gallon of your mix. This should perk the plants up in 12 hours, and mitigates the toxins the mites inject, if you have mites. I would not treat with chems without confirmation that mites are really the problem. If you are in flower, you can't use chems. Heat treatment is your best option at that stage, but confirm first before doing anything. Do not use hot water treatment. It will mess up the plants. 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.

    I Spray with Mighty wash/Rinse thorough, then next day hit with og biowar and leave that for 3 days, then come back hit it with mighty wash/Rinse again and this combined with Aspirin has been super effective.

    Any idea if the frequency will harm my bennies if it drips in my res buckets.

    All things, living or not, have a certain frequency. Royal Rife discovered many years ago that the stability of physical matter could be destroyed or compromised by simply matching its “frequency.” This phenomenon can be observed when a crystal glass explodes as the sound waves created by an opera singer match the frequency of the crystal. Royal Rife dedicated his life to finding the frequency of various diseases and trying to treat those diseases with a frequency emitting device known as the Rife Machine.

    The scientific geniuses behind Mighty Wash have been working with a type of Rife Machine designed to imprint frequency into water. Not only have they found frequencies that destroy pathogenic funguses, like powdery mildew, but they also discovered certain frequencies that destroy spider mites. Water has a unique capability of holding an imprinted frequency. Mighty Wash was created by imprinting water with a frequency known to destroy spider mites.

    Mighty Wash is the safest mite specific insecticide on the market. So safe, in fact, that I saw a sales representative drink some of the frequency imprinted water to prove there are no hidden ingredients and that the product was just water. This is the only product that is truly safe to use up until the day of harvest in a medical marijuana garden. Of course, spraying mature medical marijuana buds is never recommended, so caution must be taken in the later stages of blooming. I must say I was very skeptical of this product until I saw it in action. Mighty Wash really does work. The only downfall to this product is its shelf life. Make sure you get a fresh batch because the frequency that is imprinted in the water degrades with time.

    Yea doesn't seem to have any effect on broad mites, but it does rip spider mites in half so its gotta be more then just water. It is a rip off $$ wise either way but it does something to some species.
