AzaMax or Neem oil?

I've used both and I'm not a big fan of neem but I love AZAMAX. If you do decide to use NEEM oil, it is VERY IMPORTANT you apply the smallest amount necessary and apply it ONLY during lights out or you WILL kill or seriously burn/damage your plant. AZAMAX works best as a root drench or as a spray, and I would take the same precautions.

This might be to late to post but....
I use 1 1/2 teaspoon neem oil 1/2 teaspoon lemon dish soap to 1 quart of very warm water (not hot) and shake it up while spraying it mostly on the underside of the leaves. I also drench the soil. The plants will suck it up and be bad tasting to the bugs from what I've read. I do it just before the lights go out and blow a fan on them to dry them out for the morning and then I raise my light or dial it down for a day or so, then it's back to normal lighting. I've never burned my plants. I don't use it after the second week of flowering.

I should apply azamax as a folier spray while lights are off?

I've used both, and would rather not use Neem Oil again. To easy too burn up your leaves. Azamax on the other hand works wonders. I use a medium strength mix foilar spary, and soaked them down when the lights were on, and no burn at all, also have done it with lights out but noticed no difference in the different times. I am using RO water as well.

Yes spray when lights are off, or at least raise your lights dramatically and spray ensuring good air circulation is present. The reason being you can cause burnage to your plants if you spray while lights are on; think of a magnifying glass in the sun, same as a water droplet on a leaf.

Azamax actually has some ingredients derived from Neem so overall I suggest Azamax for it's effectiveness, OMRI certification, and ease of use.

Have you tried our sponsor's product called SNS-203?

SNS-203™ Concentrated Natural Pesticide Soil Drench and Foliage Spray is made up of pure Rosemary and Clove botanical extracts. The botanicals are all food grade GRAS (generally recognized as safe) materials. SNS-203™ Concentrated Natural Pesticide Soil Drench is exempt from EPA registration under minimum risk pesticides exempted under FIFRA section 25(b).

SNS-203™ Kills and Repels Fungus Gnats, Root Aphids, Thrips, Shore Flies and White Flies.

How It Works
High moisture levels in soils and around pots encourage the development of fungus gnats, shore flies and other pests.

Fungus gnats will feed on fungi and decaying organic material in the soil. If a fungal food source is not readily available, fungus gnats may feed directly on plants. During the propagation of cuttings, fungus gnats may feed upon the callus. This may slow down or completely inhibit rooting. They can also damage the roots as they feed upon seedlings and potted plants. On many thick and succulent stemmed plants, larvae may tunnel into stems and cause plants to wilt and die. Larval feeding upon young roots encourages the development of root and stem rots such as Pythium. When this occurs, plants will be stunted with reduced growth and leaf drop.

Shore flies feed upon algae and do not directly feed upon plants. However, their frass (droppings) on plants, in addition to their presence, may be objectionable to customers and may carry other diseases.

SNS-203™ Concentrated Natural Pesticide Soil Drench active ingredients, attack fungus and algae and cause the pests to dehydrate their body fluids and dry up.

When used as a foliage spray SNS-203™ will control and eliminate Greenhouse Thrips, Fungus Gnats, Root Aphids, White Flies and Shore Flies.

Awe that's right, SNS-203. I didn't even pay attention to what you were wanting to use it for, just got into the azamax vs neem.

That 203 product is pretty sweet, I've seen it work wonders for a lot of folks.

To recommend the correct treatment I believe these questions are relavant...

- How many plants are infected (Are they all together in one location)
- Are your plant(s) indoor or outdoor
- The level of infestation (beginning, intermediate, advanced)
- What is the growth stage of your plant

:peace:

Glad to hear it.

I always use Azamax. Spray once a week, every week until about week 2 of flower.

Prevent it, before you get it. That's my motto.

I've heard that saying before as well, it's good stuff.

One pound shouldn't be too hard, I'm sure you will pull it off.
