    I've found sellers in USA but they don't ship to UK.

    anyone help???
    Ok UK growers looks like there are only 9 products licenced by the HSE containing Spinosad, 3 are profesional products and the other 6 target ants only, bummer

    'Nippon ant Killer liquid' is the only liquid product of the 6 available and seems to work by ingestion, very cheap so I will get some asap and do a test of some kind, maybe a chance of diluting in to a usable spray,
    Maybe a european site will ship to UK

    How nice that you are here.
    As it seems, they came to my closet. The signs were there before, but I guess I was a bit sleepy, Or seemingly inexperienced. :-)

    Suddenly I noticed marks on the leaves, have the same problem everyone is talking about. Closer examination through a magnifying glass, reveals the latrines.
    I have not found the product you are talking about, but I found organic remedy that did a great job.
    What fun to see dead thrips :-)

    again, I thank you all, I learn a lot from you.

    i suggest running the plants another 1wk to flush the stuff from the plants, or you may taste it in the final product.

    Help, no such luck on Thripe control for me so far

    The local grow shop recommended Ed Roselthal's Zero Tolerance and so far honestly that shit does not seem to work very well for me. I mentioned when I went in that I wanted a spinosad based product and suggested Monterey Garden spray, Bullseye, Entrust but he talked me of it and said the Zero Tolerance is better than all of them. The Monterey Garden Spray was sitting right next to the Zero Tolerance...did I get hosed?

    just found what i initially thought were leaf miners on my 14day old LR2, but on closer inspection of the forums and lots of pics, looks like i've got thrips, the little bastards.... cant see any bigger ones about, but the damage is there on the leaves, also the poop

    for any other aussies out there, you can find spinosad at Bunnings, its called Yates Success, Naturalyte Insect Control, took me awhile to find it cos they had a billion different bug killers on the shelf. bottle is 200mls and cost me 15 bucks, not bad.

    gona go mix some up now, buh bye thripies

    can spinosod be applied 2 weeks into flowering? I have a family of wild ladybugs keeping thrips to a minimum since I first applied the spinosod a few weeks ago, but I am still finding a couple thrips, including a mature winged thrip(that I killed). I'd like to do another treatment before it gets too late, or is it already too late?

    Just want to say thanks for this thread, and report that all thrips are dead(for now) after my first spray down of spinosod. This stuff works.

    Does spinosod kill ladybugs? I have 5 wild ladybugs in my tent now, and I spent a while trying to capture them and keep them away from the plant for a day while I sprayed it down. I just want to know for when the thrips come back.

    Yes thrip have a life cycle in the soil. Do not reuse it.

    No, thrip do not make any webbing.

    Captain Jacks is the shit.

    In the UK........Bonide is one of 3 companies that make a spinosad brew......google them up and see if they sell in your country.

    Just so every one knows........bugs are getting stronger and the pesticides we have available will eventually lose their effectiveness.

    On the back of the Capt Jacks bottle, it says not to apply it more than 10 times in one year to avoid a tolerance build up. So make sure you are switching up yer poison.

    Death to thrip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
