all the lables on organic pesticides say "up to and including day of harvest" and can be used whenever needed.

those girls are young, you could use something stronger and still pass a pesticide test. I'd put a new No Pest Strip on them for a couple weeks

 

 

(if you want some organic pesticides, I have a few varieties and I'm willing to share!)

dang king...

sucks right..

been there struggled with that...

 

i tried everything i could find. i used miterid, plant vitality plus, and azamax stuff... and they all worked for like a week or two, then the buggers come back stronger, and healthier each time.

well after maybe 12-14 treatments like that someone in this forum suggested using hot shots brand no pest strips.

they recommended packaging them for two weeks and then using them for two weeks. (insects develop resistance to constant pesticides)

so on the first of the month (today) i put my 4 into a ziplock and put them away.

i have one in my flower romm, one in my veg room, one in my bedroom, and one in my dining room now, and i am so happy...no fleas, spiders, ant's, bedbugs, flys...ect ect..

and since then....

not one white spot has returned...

i pray everyday it stays that way..

hot shots no pest strips work for sure. at least they worked on my infestation....where nothing else would....

AzaMax is rated for use on veggies and flowering plants. I've used it successfully on flowering plants, though you might also have to pay attention to humidity and mold concerns.

 

Mite-Rid can be used into flower also.

 

I haven't used Safers spray in a while, don't know about that.

 

The last time I had a mite infestation late in flower I kept them under control with CO2. A few hours 10,000 ppm slowed them down but didn't stop them. 80,000 to 120,000 ppm killed most of them, but not all. I have a pretty well-sealed 10x10 room, fed with bottled CO2 in 20 pound tanks, but it's still hard to bring the CO2 levels up high enough to really kill 100% of the mites.

yes, no pest strips work great but they are not safe. Maybe in veg they would be ok for short periods of time. Read the label and warnings, I would not want to put this stuff into my body. It says not to be used in areas inhabited by humans or pets or something to that effect.

If you spray for mites you should spray again in three days. Do that 3 times. Remember these things and their eggs are very small. If you miss one well then they are coming back. Spray em and then put the no pest strip up. Be very carefull with them as stated above.

 

The mites will get resistant to the no pest strip too so they are part of the rotation. all it takes is a mite that can withstand the stuff and they are back.

 

Buy Captain Jacks Deadbug. I just bought some in the Ann Arbor Garden Center for 16 bucks for the concentrate. It kills the eggs too. I rotate this with azmax and now I am using 12 drops of rosemary essential oil, a little wetting agent , and one qt of water.

 

The most effective way to get rid of mites is to have BB wear a tube top and hot pants into your garden. That will probably scare anything out of your house. The second best way is to have me wear the same!

 

Best of luck.

mighty wash works wonders with a couple of apps and its non toxic,,, 99% frequency controlled water and 1% inert ingredient (wetting agent)

 

 

x2!!!!

 

This shiiiit works. Knocks them dead after a couple of treatments.

 

Weekly azamax spray and feeding keeps them away for good.

 

Good luck!

Update now im battling the 2nd generation but im making headway i switched over to azamax and it did a very good job no more crawlers but i still see eggs so 7 days from now (per label instruction ) i will hit them again . :sword:

 

 

As a preventive I buy a jar of ladybugs from my local hydro store about every other month.$10 buys me 1500 spider mite hungry beautiful predators.No pest strips,no chemicals,just Azamax when needed.Before releasing the ladybugs at night, I make sure nothing poisonous is in the area.An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.Good luck man,spider mites suk

I find this intriguing I saw a bag of them, yes a see-through netted bag of them at the hydro-store as well. The proprietor tells me that you can spray them with some soda-water to keep them from flying away, and that if you do that for the first few days they lay eggs and become "local" as they don't like to migrate once they have breed. Is that true? If so does that mean once you put them there you can not use no-pest strips, neem, or azamax ect.?

 

I tend never to believe anything the hydro-store guys tell me.

 

How effective of a pest control measure are they by themselves?

 

***We are the mites...lower your pest strips and surrender your garden. We will add it's biological and technological distinctiveness to our own...Resistance is futile.***

 

DUDE! You know what you really need? Jean Luc Picard. I heard he knows how to destroy them!
