We need a proper tarsonomeid faq, because there aren't many people who are going to sift through 147 pages to find relevant info.

    You couldnt be more right Sooper!

    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

    may i interest you in our latest high end model that says i am sophisticated yet have a clue... the tin top.


    not feeling like a bow tie tonight??? then how about our less formal selection that still retains all of the mind ray blocking technology as our tin top without the need for the tin monocle or cane. the tin cap.

    Breakdown Tactics

    So here's my plan for clean up: any recommendations would be appreciated...

    Harvest Plants (remove all plant material from the premises)
    Drop aerosol bombs- Pylon (chlorfenapyr) Raid Deep Reach (cypermethrin)
    Exhaust entire building
    Heat treatment applied to all rooms
    Remove trash and any remaining plants debris
    Remove and dispose of drop-down ceiling tiles
    Remove any unnecessary equipment from the building
    Spray entire building with bleach and water mixture (floors, walls, drop-down ceiling frame, split unit ACs) wipe walls down and mop with bleach and Pine Sol mixture.
    Make a clean room (this room has been thoroughly cleaned, painted and heat treated)
    Wash all equipment: including nutrient bottles, etc. with (bleach, Ajax, Simple Green mixture) then place in the clean room
    Final wipe down of rooms including hoods, ballasts, and controllers: sweep and mop
    Paint the inside of the building: walls and floor with (Kills2 paint/primer)
    Tent Fumigation applied to entire building with Sulfuryl Fluoride gas: air conditioners set to fan, to purge units and ducting of pests
    Install brand new drop-down ceiling tiles
    Final bleach spray down of rooms, and inside of building with equipment in place
    Final heat treatment of rooms with equipment in place

    To me it sounds like Seahawks junky is having a hard time getting rid of his product, for the desired amount. He keeps calling into question dispensaries who want infected buds and growers willing to take 2400 a unit. Me thinks he went in asking rediculous donations for his "only non infected bud on the west coast" and got sent packing. How close am I?

    Sam clearly you don't understand what's going on! This has been brewing 4 years, this simple problem has exploded it's only gonna get worse, again it's already devastating fruit and veg farmers! I'm really surprised your calling me a joke! You realize I can publish your comments in the future! The good news is prices should go up, growers have all the leverage your buyers have large inventories of infected bud let em know! If a dispensary doesn't wanna play ball call city councilman or anti MJ organ if you don't like your disp drop a dime!

    If BM is as bad as you think then the whole agricultural world will be devoted to find a cure, either that or we can all die of starvation.
    You seem to think that BM is everywhere, but it is not.
    You can set up a new greenhouse, use massive amounts of preditors and good IPM greenhouse management, including screening windows and air exchange with very fine mesh to stop the bad guys, changing clothes, showers, etc before work. Don't bring any clones in the grow without several repeated dips a week apart with the nastiest chemicals. I do it with very small rooted clones, less then 6 inches, then I grow them big but clean, and take clean clones to use for flowering, I do not flower sprayed plants, I use them as materials to make mothers.
    If you think a small scale grower, with knowledge, can weather the storm, don't you think just maybe that others can find solutions to grow tons without BM problems? Of course they can, I did.
    I have never found a pest problem that could not be dealt with. I have been doing this for more then 30 years...
    What a joke....

LOL If your a small scale grower who truly seeks knowledge you will be able to weather the storm. Humbolt growers would be smart to sell their land not only do they have BM but they have a pesticide resistant spider mite waiting 2 step up 2 bat!

    The good folks here and elsewhere that depend on the industry for bringing this into the light .It will either be by the industry itself (and this is always better) or what the state or fed government does when the toxins start hurting people. Fortunately the canna industry unlike the Big tobacco is not in the business of promoting a product that by itself is cancer causing or a neuro toxin or physically addictive the way the 260 plus chemicals that are added to tobacco are.It's best to get people in compliance on our own rather than let Big pharma or the state or the feds force it. Nice observation seahawk. People can get back to arguing about crap I'm otta here. Saying people have been using the toxins they are now using or worse for decades (Im old) will not bait me back into this discussion as that argument is full of giant holes.

    What have you folks been doing to completely eradicate them?
    Are there any natural plants or herbs that deter these pests? something you can plant outside your grow for example

    this kontos seems to be the BUSINESS!

    from http://www.rsc.org/chemistryworld/Is...yForMarket.asp

    "Bayer's latest insecticide is also a member of a known insecticide family, structurally modified to boost its properties. Where Bayer's first two tetronic acid-based insecticides, spirodiclofen and spiromesifen [Forbid/Judo], coat the leaf surface, new family member spirotetramat is actually taken up by the plant.

    The compound is then carried around the plant, including into roots and newly-forming shoots, giving sucking insect pest like aphids and whitefly an unpleasant surprise. The compounds work by inhibiting lipid biosysnthesis, affecting reproduction in adults and especially juveniles."

    I've found Spirotetramat sold under the names... Kontos, Movento, and Ultor so far.

    Kontos and Movento are 22.4% Spirotetramat while Ultor is 14.5% Spirotetramat.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    aaaaaand here's the answer we're all looking for...

    i believe the panda land he is referring to is Alibaba.

    lol chinese manufacturers selling this stuff by the kilo. 99% pure Spirotetramat powder... $50-100 per kilo.
    +1, China is the shit. Alibaba, Tradekey, ect.. Those are the two big ones I know of, Alibaba is my favorite because of the escrow option..
