I'm 12 days away from harvest, and will be out of town for the next 8. These mites have really taken over in the past few days, and they are starting to web. It just seems as though nothing will knock them out anymore.
How horrible is it for me to use a Hot Shot Fogger. It is supposed to kill Roaches, Fleas, Ants, Spiders, Waterbugs, and others. The active ingrediants are Tetramethrin, Permethrin, Piperonyl butoxide.
Directions are to fog area for an hour, and then air out.
I really need some quick advice, and I do understand that this may not be a very good idea. I just need to know if it will work, and be somewhat safe.
I agree,if you havent tried a nPS do that first for sure.Remember what the tiny yellow/whitish dots on the leaves look like to catch the infestation early,thats the key.If you see the dots look along the main vein on the underside of the leaf for eggs,at this point there will only be a few scattered mites on the leaf surface
It is time to WAR. Pyrethrine bombs can be used as well.
I think you hit it on the head with the ventilation.
Cut the ventilation down for 24-36 hours to let the No Pest Strips (NPS) hammer everything with an exoskeleton and a heartbeat. Of course watch temps but NPS generally kill everything otherwise pyrethrine bomb the bastards back to the kingdom of allah or buddah or whoever.
I have been told that Permethrin disipates on its own within a few days. If that were the case it would be OK. It might be a good idea to do a little research first though.....
JJScorpio is a fictional name I use on marijuana forums only. All posts and pictures are fictional. Any other use of this name, in any other forums or chatrooms, will be someone other than myself.
check the right side of page 29 of this Max yeild... It shows you the Doktor Doom product I was talking about but it takes a special hand held fogging machine but it is safe to use on flowering/fruiting plants... miht want to call em and ask if thier can foggers are safe also http://www.maximumyield.com/fullissu...m6-can-pt1.pdf
