Hi - newbie here… only area that will accommodate my grow space and equipment is my unfinished basement…would like to know if I should pre-treat/spray the tent space and perimeter of tent with "bug or insect killer before I put together and place the tent, and install lights and filtration???..(if so can you advise of a poduct?)
I would just make sure everything is clean. Unless you already have a bug problem, then it makes sense to tackle that first.
Ehhh you could but I really don’t think you need it. You’d be bringing in the pests via the soil so any treatment to the tent would not eliminate the initial problem.
Go ahead and grab some BTi and Diatomaceous Earth Food Grade and sprinkle on top of soil. These are organic and work well. Can also get some yellow sticky pads to monitor pest population levels if you’re worried about pests.
Dbrn32 has you covered, and welcome to ILGM.
