A customer has a question and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks

What should we do about the spider mites.

Kill them.
They make sprays and products to help. I have seen alot of people using hot shot product but you can only put it in your room for 24 hrs max. There’s neem oil and other kinds of pesticides that are natural. I’m going to tag in @Donaldj as he seems to have all the answers for pests and deficiency

I had them on a couple outdoor plants and used neem oil on said plants. They went away (for now).

I dont use it myself ,but there is a product called Green Cleaner that is reported to work well. There are also lots of homemade concoctions that some growers swear by.

How bad are the spider mites at what stage in your grow? details matter early Veg things like Floramite Spinosad and neem oil work later stages mid to late flower you almost simply suffer through them and finish


I am currently fighting them with the below products and having success. Mites are close to impossible to fully exterminate however I’ve significantly fended them off my plant and kept them at bay in the soil. I keep DE around my stem and sprinkle it among my soil. It can also be used as a foliar spray or sprinkle. Good luck happy growing.
