I’m about three weeks from harvesting my 3 haze strains. My problem is I have just started to notice Spider Mites on the leaves. So my question to all you growers out there is . What kinds of chemical pesticides would you use in my case? Hoping to get some sensible feedback on this because I don’t want to hurt my girls in no way. I’ve used Flying Skull products in the past and would like to know what other good food grade products might be used out there.
@garrigan62 also has a great home made spray you can use to spray the soil and the plant to get rid of mites
Tabacco Juice recipe
Take 3 strong ciggeretes or more soak them over night in water adding hot chili power the hotter the better. And
Boil it for 2 to 3 miniutes, let it cool off. Then using ladies nylon socks strain other wise you won’t be able to spray it. and spray the plants 3 to 4 times a week. You can add safer soap if you like to the mixture.
(make absolutly sure you use gloves/face protection while handling and spraying)
Nicotine is toxic, so be careful. Spinosad is nontoxic and certified for organic veggies and tobacco up to a week before harvest. It’s from a bacteria like BT but is neurotoxic to insects instead of clogging their guts. Home improvement stores have it, such as Montery Garden Insect Spray. Get a spray bottle while you are there.
Well I went and gone with the FLYING SKULL and that did the trick. Everything came out just fine! The Purple Haze is wonderful. The yields were a little low ; but that’s a grow and learn issue and I’m not worried there. The flavor is too good to describe and the high is nominal!
