The second cab with the NLx ladies shows no damage, all the pistils are healthy and i dont see any running around under 60x. The infected cab was obvious and severe EVERY pistil had shriveld as soon as flowers appeared. If i scoped the budsites i immidiately would see at least a few running around i didnt have to search at all.
I got a fan circulating air inside the first cab with the intake and exhaust fans turned off. After a hour i got temps up to 100f not sure my 400w will get it up to around 120 but im gonna try. Ive even contemplated taking a heat gun to the cab but i might mess the panda film up and have to reskin it. That might be needed in the end but trying to avoid having to reskin it that took a lot of panda film and gorilla tape.
If your space has no plants, 120 is no problem, needs to be twenty minutes minimum, I’d do an hour or two. Even hotter if possible, since temps will vary from the top versus the bottom of the space.
To be more effective, repeat the treatment 2-3 times.
If plants are being treated along with the room, 118 is too hot, and fans will make even 116-117 to cause losses. In a small space fans aren’t needed, only larger spaces, and dont have fans blowing on plants at all.
Maybe add another light, or space heater, to hit the temps needed.
And, hate to bring bad news, but the chances of the healthy cab having mites is good if the cabs are at all close to each other. Hopefully not, but it’s a possibility.
