Hot-Box sulfer burners.

Anyone has any experience with using em against a mite infestation?

Not as a mite killer but to combat p.m. and generally keep the flying pests away. Did two six hour burns a week apart with no fans before switching to flower. One word of caution, if you have sprayed anything on your girls that has oil or residue you will want to wait at least a week or ten days so that the sulfur does not stick to it and burn your entire room. I had no probs, just a heads up.NS

Great question!
Here is a little input from a place that sells the burners,

"Sulphur Burners are very effective, and will control mold or mildew by raising the pH of the leafs surface, which makes the environment and surroundings unsuitable for mold or mildew to establish itself. Vaporized sulfur has been found to interupt the cycle of eggs of most insect pests preventing them from hatching. Sulphur burners should not be used within 3 days of an oil based product being applied to the crop (IE einsteins oil or neem oil) or when the leaves are damp, or wet.. "

Hi Moppel
im into this atm. noticed a few speckles on the diesel a couple of days ago, am running a hotbox primarily to neutralize a killa strain of pm. Am running it during lights out, exhaust of, over next few days. Am hanging back on the bug spray to see if the sulphur does them in.
Will try to remember to post update etc
the hotbox saved a crop a couple of runs back, now im using it, routinely, on every run
peace

I can tell you it tastes disgusting. Probably not that great for you either.

If you're using it to 'control' PM during veg and haven't cleaned up your surrounding environment... you're usually going to have 'issues' during flower.

Keep your intakes HEPA filtered, eradicate (if possible) any outdoor patches you find with what... I think Eagle-20 is the reigning champ? Don't enter your garden wearing outdoor clothing, don't bring any clones or plants in from outside without treating and quarantining them.

Basically.... understand how the PM spreads and grows and you can act accordingly. No sprays in flower unless it's H2O2... that's the way I always flower, that's the only way to have superior medicinal quality.

Stay Safe!

its not that bad. the first time i ran the hotbox was 5weeks into flower, not a good idea in the inner city because when i turned the fans off the street smelled like a meth lab and a farm....v nerve racking.
/he peeps who state that if you run sulphur in flower you fuck your crop are wrong, ive done it and nobody, including me, noticed. Im in the pub now and the hotbox is on at the op. you get used to the smell and lightheadedness yo

I have used sulphur candles for fumigation of empty rooms - kills all mold and pests.
Very useful for cleaning out DIY cabs where there are lots of nooks and crannies for spider mites to hide.

Never used sulphur with plants though. It sure stinks.
