    Kontos used as a soil drench just saved a few of my mom's suffering really badly. Took about a week and they are healthy and green again

    Also, I should mention, when using sulfur, you don't want to have applied any oil based substances via foliar spray 2-3 weeks prior to treating.

    Sulfur foliar sprays seem to be knocking back the broad mites for me. They seem to be a bad problem here in norcal. everywhere is sold out of sulfur. apparantly its the only thing that'll wipe em out.

    Very hopeful about my first root drench of Kontos. Been gettin hell from the bm in Humboldt. Organicann was friendly enough to give root aphids so should kill them Aswell. Seems as though this is the best method to clean young plants. Gonna do a follow up with spectracide, it was mentioned earlier that this is harmful to bm also.

    spider mites, caterpillars, broad mites... who's counting anyway?

    And they are scattered around,

    But The thing that gets me is that there are huge amounts of eggs everywhere not just UNDER the leaves.

    The symptoms I got was mostly rust spots and yellowing leaves deficiency symptoms in other words.
    Not to an extreme but still annoying enough. So I upped the nutes and not a major difference and now 2 months into the fight I start digging and yesterday i started heating it up

    I've pulled a few out of my tallest plants in the backyard.

    The things are gross, and they shit all over inside the buds.

    The BT K in the ogbiowar is the same active ingredient in the safer brand caterpillar killer. from what i've seen the ogbiowar sucks for caterpillar killing though. i quickly switched back to the safer spray and saw dying caterpillars crawling out everywhere a couple days later.
    it is kind of late to start treating, but better late than never. i've been spraying weekly for 2 months now.

    In my paranoid state of mind Im seeing broad mite eggs everywhere or from jumping from thread page 1 to 70 and back to page 30 again and so on I think it's cyclamen eggs right now.

    Or is it trichomes?
    All I see (with my cheap ass 100x microscope) is that it's perfectly round (not oval) shaped.
    They are milky white in their colour.
    They are on the top of the leaves as well as under.

    With a faq on the first page people like me wouldnt be so clueless

    Thanks Sampson.

    I'm gonna pick up some Safer Brand Caterpillar Killer with BT and see if it helps.

    ...until then, I'll continue to manually exterminate them with extreme vengeance LOL !

    Nope just gotta do caterpillar patrol every morning. Check your tops or they will eat them from the inside out. It takes a good bit of time but its the only way to stop them is to pluck them and squash the little bitches.
