This is a good read.

When I had to them I caught it early. They were only in veg and on my moms. I used forbid4f and avid. It got rid of them on the first application of forbid4f, but still used the avid 3 days later. Then forbid again, 3 days after that.

I also sprayed down the entire area (walls, lamp hoods, floor, anything in the space) with straight 91% ISO (rubbing alcohol). I sprayed every time I treated the plants.

I’ve been mite free for 10 months. It definitely couldn’t hurt to do the whole house. With these things, you gotta pull out all the stops and don’t skip out on anything. The more overboard, the safer.

I’d use a no pest strips in flower area. It should keep them at bay, if not get rid of the ones there.

Can't believe people are still recommending Avid and Forbid in this day and age.

I've tried the no pest strip, but it was over 20 years ago. Now I just use water dips if I get mites in flowering. No pest strip works, but you have to seal the room and put a circulating fan on the strip to make sure the nerve gas or whatever it is gets distributed. Problem is, to get it to work is a high dose, and it will leave a residue. I wouldn't use it on flowering plants at all, only in veg if ever.

I'd recommend learning to water dip. It's very effective and totally 'organic', but you have to keep dipping once a week or so 'till harvest because straight water doesn't knock off the eggs too well. You can also double dip, once in a soap and/or neem solution then water. Double dipping takes twice as long, but it gets the eggs and can even wipe the mites right out if you follow up with a second hit in 3-5 days.

Even big plants up to and beyond 5 gallon containers can be dipped with two people. Use a 'trough' container for the water like a big cooler or rubber maid, or even a bathtub. One person holds the plants pot and lowers the plant to about horizontal above the trough while the other person shampoo's and pushes the branches under water. Take your time and be sure to smile, the mites are having a very bad day.

Ok simple, no big deal. Really. It takes some time and effort but you can get rid of them. We are not talking about a field of plants here. If that were the case (you or I had a field/farm of cannabis with all mite infestation) then no, probably not going to get rid of them easily. But for your indoor grow that you can micromanage, yes absolutely. Horticultural oil like bee safe 3 in 1 or whatever stylet oil etc garden soap that sort of thing kills aphids and mites. Mechanical defoliation is not necessary for every garden but it serves a multi-purpose when there's mites involved. Remove all infected leaves (sometimes only leaving the growing tips really) and drench the whole plant and soil some with weakly dilute solution of 3 in 1 or the like. Repeat a few times for a few days. If you can do that and sweep/mop the floor or sterilize the grow room with h2o2, iso, soap and water, etc, you can hopefully rid them before flower onset and won't have to worry about them coming back at least until next grow.
