    Question Smokin Spider Mites?

    I know I can't taste them but I know they are there....hundreds of dead spider mites in my buds. I had a bad infestation during the finish of this plant and under a 60X glass you can see the old eggs, dead mites, and little dark spots which I will assume may be mite poop...YUCK!
    So does anyone know if smoking these buds are going to give me any ill effects? I'm sure somewhere along the way I have smoked them before in bud, but this time I know they are there.

    You really can't be serious. I would not advise smoking bud with "any kind" poop on it.

    I don't really know if it is poop, just trying to get a rise from ya. So all you people have tossed out hundreds of $$ of weed when you had spider mites, or have none of you experienced spider mites infesting your plants??

    PS,
    I am not really a newbie, I am just new here.

    Ive had spider mites plenty of times before to know to get rid of them before I harvest. When I look at them they will have no traces of any of the sort when Im done.

    I've smoked some that was probably sprayed w/ Paraquat in Mexico, and I'm OK.

    Spider mite faecal matter and body parts is a major and serious contaminant in dried cannabis. It is known to contain e-coli and other pathogens. It poses a very real and serious risk to lungs, and is an antagonist for many lung conditions.
    So folks, it is very important you take care to control spider mites!

    Yeah Boss I agree - but if it were'nt for this place where the inexperienced can gain the wisdom of the experienced there would be no chance of growing as a whole - a comunity where he elders help the newbies and we all progress towards betterness. This world is kinder to educated stoners. So thanks Smokin Moose for the tip and Boss for the guidence - respect!

    Cut your losses and move on.

    I just went out to check on my plants an found one of the heaviest buds that was hanging down from weight invested with these damn menaces! I was out there trying to wipe them off with an ear bud but it seems like a loss to me. I then proceeded to put a ready made joint down on he floor near my plants and forgetfully watered them with it getting drenched(!) and when I looked for it I was like "NOOOoooo o o o o o o! It is drying in the sun now but it will not be the same - I guess here is no need to cry over sogy indo!

    Anyone ever tried a portable clothing steamer? The kind that get wrinkles out of clothes? That could be worth a try.
