Hello! I’m growing some Jack Herer. My plants started flowering around early-mid August, and my best estimate is that they’ve been in this stage for 6-7 weeks.
A few days ago, I noticed some of my buds turning brown. I promptly removed all of the afflicted buds I could find and figured it was bud rot. Yesterday, as I was looking for more bud rot, I found little green caterpillars crawling around some of my buds. I removed 3 of them, then went digging around again today and found ~10 more. I see no amber trichromes, and was planning to wait a few more weeks at least until harvest.
Is there anything else I can do other than be vigilant in removing the caterpillars and any rotted buds. I was thinking about spraying BT to take care of the caterpillars, but I’m worried to spray so late in the game. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
