I had one plant that had to be harvested. So I did the peroxide wash, wow, unreal on how dirty the plant was. I bought All Seasons Horticultural & Dormant Spray oil. Thankyou @MattyBear @Covertgrower @fano_man @Myfriendis410 @Drinkslinger

Dormant spray oil never heard of it

After quick research it’s a lil safer then neem its petroleum based still but is non systemic and dosent get absorbed by a plant and ultimately can wash off the surface but being organic not so much and wouldn’t be able to be used in medical grade cannabis

I go up to East Burke (kingdom trails) a few times every summer. The NEK is an even more awesome place.

This morning I was thinking how :crazy_face: much time I had spent with my 4 white widow plants, how great they were growing. Then the aphids attack, depressing. But the good news is I have another chance of trying to make things perfect. (not every thing is perfect). I have 7 white widow clones in a smaller tent on the third floor in veg. doing good. I didn’t want to grow clones, but I am glad I have them. After the aphids ones are harvested, I will be cleaning the tent again, and I will put yellow sticky strips up. Also I will grow the w.w. longer in veg, so they get taller and more buds. I did not know what the white fluffy stuff was on a couple of plants, I thought it was part of the plant. I spent a lot of time and work on these plants. I will wash my plants from now on. @fano_man @Myfriendis410 @MattyBear @Drinkslinger @Covertgrower @

Harvested and washed the other 2 white widow. The aphids sucked the crap out of two of my plants, looked like popcorn buds :unamused:. So I had to save the other two plants, before they got to them. I will clean and sanitize my tent again and spray it. Put yellow stickies in it, and clean and sanitize the room as much as possible. Before I move by beautiful clones in the tent. Kind of scary. Have no clue were the aphids came from. I picked myself up brushed myself off, and read to rock and roll!!! @fano_man @MattyBear @Myfriendis410 @@Drinkslinger @Covertgrower :wink:

That’s the right attitude to have @Dreamer! Keep me posted on your progress and your next grow :wink::v::bear:

Sometimes someone slacks down there at the farm, and aphid eggs don’t get fully sterilized when they cook the soil. I had aphids that I’m pretty sure came from the soil.

Me to it can be no fault if your own …next time just they have mild treatments that prevent this sort of thing periodic things that aren’t harsh and kill the few loners that might pop up before they swarm

I haven’t seen anyone try this but I’ll bet it would work: place a large trash bag around plant and dump a chunk of dry ice in the bottom, seal so it vents out the top and leave for 24 hours. I’ll bet THAT will kill all aphids. Should not harm plant at all.
