I'll catch a bug problem or PM problem whenever i out source for clones which i always regret once every couple years. Other than that im not seeing signs of the Russian Rullette you are speaking of.
Just a Thrip issue from some infected cuts i picked up without the proper precautions.
I'm sure you know this, but worth mentioning for others having insect or mold problems .

Quarantine incoming clones or seedlings. Deal with any problems before they become bigger plants. Much easier to deal with on a small scale. Whole plants can be dunked and every inch covered. Much harder to spay a large plant and catch all of it properly.
Also always easier to deal with a few insects and eggs rather that thousands.

Best of luck dealing with the Borg

Wow Mike it’s troubling to read of Spinosad resistant thrips. Ive had success with the cheaper products by using root drenches and foliage applications but I highly doubt the thrips here are as evolved as yours are. Maybe give the conserve a shot and rotate with a biological like Botaniguard. Good luck, your gonna have a Brownfield site on your hands with all the stuff your spraying.

Being that im on the west coast and the most over sprayed state im betting he's right as well. These things are super resistant to several poisons that usually drop bugs dead instantly.
Im hoping once i buy some Spinosad thats 22% as opposed to the .5% thats in Monterey and in the Captain Jacks, these Thrips will get handled.
I had no clue they were selling 22% Spinosad online.
Fuckin $400-$500 bucks for online Spinosad A % B
Thats steep as hell for a spray

Agreed buddy. A lazy mistake that i know much better than to pull. Quarantine is mandatory.

Western Flower thrip?

If you are sure the spinosad is not working, try Steinernema feltiae nematodes and stratiolaelaps mites. Spray plant therapy with an added 15 ml per gallon either food grade ethanol or just regular isopropyl.

Grow some basil plants around your herb. Doesn't have to be a ton. The smell and oil from the basil drives thrips away and keeps population under control even if it doesn't exterminate 100%. Very convenient and low labor/cost method. Marigolds repel thrips as well.

I'm sure this prob isn't something you want to try, but it's cheap! You can get like 1500 ladybugs for $7 on Amzn. You can just release a few at a time and keep the rest alive in their medium they come in. Just thinking outside the box.

Indoor grow? Try Hot Shot NO PEST STRIPS. Read and follow all directions. These will be the end of your problem. I won't grow without them.

make your own. tanglefoot applied to ORANGE solo cups, yes it must be orange for thrips, YELLOW for white flies

i tried every color cup and these worked the best

paint it on with chip brush you have cut bristles down on, place cup upside down and its a trap

oh and for white flies cups need to be placed in top of stakes around top of plants and for thirps you can just put around base of plants, also by the holes in the pots
