    Re: neem oil

    yes, it's OK to use neem oil when 40 days in flower, but some growers don't like the taste it can give the buds.

    try to avoid getting it on the buds unless you have to.

    Make sure you spray them with plain water a few times before harvest, it will help clean off any residual oil.

    I also took a buddies suggestion of using those "Hot shot" pacs, found them on line, place one in my flower room and one in the start room, and I have not had a single critter since!
    Way cheaper than Dr Doom or other fogger type applications.

    I also have started buying my Neem from non grow site operations, can pick up a Qt for under 20 bucks... shows the profit margin the shops have! Just Google or Bing, NEEM oil, tons of cheaper sites show up.

    Re: neem oil

    i too have used the "hot shot" no pest strip.first time i used one it worked great. but just 2 weeks back i put up a new one and 3 days later i could see those little spider mites moving around!!! wait a minute here!!! all i can figure is the exaust fan is pulling out the fumes(or what ever kills the bugs) before it works...i tried to have the pest strip out of the way as not to pull out all the "good stuff". that is some strongs stuff.on the box it says not to exceed 4 hours in a closed area.(for people) it has a different smell thats for sure.so i am thinking there should be something better/safer out there. neem oil? or the pyrethra?(its made from flowers) anyway the battle goes on.my next asualt will be a osalating fan,heard that mixes them up... happy trails and God Bless America, todd

    Re: neem oil

    Yes neem oil is amazing stuff and should be a staple precautionary for any good grower. Its 100% organic and works great.
    You can use it on your flowering plants but rinse real well but harvesting like some others say.
    Use mite rid for infestations of spider mites
    Its organic also

    Hot spot pest strip are great also but not all natural so not recommended for organic growing

    Good luck!
