Hey guys, earlier in the year you all helped me with a Wedding Cake Clone. A caterpillar got to it but I managed to jar 50+ grams. Thank you all.

I currently have 2 plants from seed. They are being attacked heavily by mites. Everyday I take a few down and then I run through the branches and nug sites for webs.
They are currently in week2 week3 of flower. Is there anything I can spray while also using lady bugs?

Try just spraying them off with a jet of water from a hose or something. I've heard some people use a vacuum too but IDK if that would work. Physical removal of the pests is really your only option once it starts flowering, anything you spray on it will ruin your crop.

Thanks bro.
I've used Monterey bay for caterpillars inter early weeks of flower and it didn't fukk up my shit but for mites I would be using something else so IDK how the crop would react. I guess back to ladybugs

oh yeah, that sticky stuff on the stem is a good idea. What is that shit called again? tanglefoot or tangle trap I think. They crawl around and get stuck on it and die. It's especially useful for critters that hatch on the ground and crawl up the stem.

diluted lemon juice mixed with diluted vodka is a good spray for spider mites, i think a dry diatomaceous earth dustbath will probably get rid of spider mites too.

If you're very careful you can use a vacuum to pull webs and mites off.

Garlic, chilli blitz'd up and put into water with a bit of dish-soap. Put it in a jar and then in the sun for a few days to cook up a touch. Strain it off, put into spraying tool and give the girls a once over every few days.
I think you can still get away with spraying them at this point early flower without fucking the flowers up too much.

Neem Oil+water+castile soap+a bit of cayenne make a perfect spray. Completely safe for your plants and takes care of most insects, unwanted molds, etc.

Also, top dress with some diatomaceous earth.

In the future you can buy mantis online and they work well for taking care of many pests.

I place dead [insect repelling] plants at the base of my pot like trimmings from basil, chives, mint, marigolds, and stuff related to garlic or onions. Then i spray my plant in the evening with the mist setting on the hose nozzle. I heard they just fall off. I just recently noticed white bugs in my soil so i put those rolley polley bugs at the base and they are eating them up and like to hide under things so put flat rocks all around your plant to attract them. Ive get one thrip and 5 leafhoppers a day on my plant but i pinch kill them. Also leave the greenflies on your plant since they also eat thrips and spider mites but youll need to hose off thier poop which doesnt seem to get in the buds let alone happen anymore since i added the insect repellant.

Also mist setting spray the bottoms of the leaves! They all hide and leave eggs there.

If the white bugs in your soil are springtails (tiny jumping flea-like things), they help to prevent disease by eating dead and decaying plant matter, and they shit out food for the plant. They're a beneficial organism and they tend to stay away from the buds and upper parts of the plant.

Plants release Volatile Organic Compounds (which are like plant screams) when they are stressed. This unfortunately attracts pests. You need to alleviate the stress and get rid of the existing pests that are opportunistic feeders.

Use host plants like Melons, Tomatoes, Strawberries, Eggplant, and Beans that are loaded with systemic insecticide to bate and kill the spider mites. Damage them a bit to make them scream and attract the pests. Keep the plants out of the hot afternoon sun.

If you can isolate each plant inside of a bag or giant cone, that would be ideal. I know this is also crazy, but belief affects them. Keep a statue there to guard, like one of those monks. Spray it with insecticide. I know you will laugh and green text me, but I don't care. Good luck!
