spider mites in late flower

will spraying with water do any good?? will it hurt?


should I do anything different while drying to stop them?

Will they continue to try and live while i am drying?

Yes, spider mites are insidious and will keep going until you kill them.
Kind of awful to say but death is the only option.
Water will do no good.
Some say dish detergent in water but I haven't had much success with that.
Insecticidal soap or neem work.
Neem smells and leaves a residue.
Insecticidal soaps are available in the big box stores and there are organic ones that are veggie/fruit safe.

There may be other solutions and someone may chime in, but I have rid my plants of spider mites with one application of insecticidal soap.

good luck

No Pest Strips will also work and won't leave a residue, but the chemical in them is some nasty shit.

eighty9concentr will become famous soon enough
You can try and knock them down a little with a vacuum, just suck em right off the plants. This won't solve the problem though, only way to completely rid of them is with a pesticide. Even with that it is hard to completely rid them from a grow with out breaking down the whole room and cleaning it top to bottom before you put fresh girls in

Spray with H2O2 in the morning so thee is plenty of light to dry the dampness

A couple treatments should do the trick

You need to get their eggs too

I don't think I've ever heard of that one. What do you use, just straight 3% peroxide?

Yep

It burns them up, and leaves harmless H2O residue

I buy ~ 30% at Beauty supply and dilute ~ 5-10% for cleaning or killing

Mix ~ 1:10 H2O

35% Food Grade ($$$) mix 1:11

I'm sorry to hear about the mites late in flower. Sanitize your grow area and start over brother; it happens to all of us at some point.

PetFlora,
That's a great solution. I never heard of it but next time , which I hope doesn't happen, I'm going to use it. I keep a quart of food grade in the frig.
Lumberjack sorry to hear you pulled it down. Well, might as well do a thorough cleaning then.
Better luck next round.
