    Re: spider mites

    Best thing to get rid of em stat. I never had em but read they're a bitch. You need to do some research quick unless someone that had em and successfully have rid em; seems like theres lots of products for em; one that comes to mind is liquid ladybug and axamax; if i remember correctly, neem oil is a preventive. Best luck to you.

    If you got them, you've got lots more you don't know about. I've had them and bad. They actually got immune to over 9 different concoctions including Neem. I tried everything but they will come back. At best, you can keep them at bay but you MUST spray religiously and check each and every plant EVERY DAY at least once. Even dipping (submerging them) didn't rid them. Again, they come back. The ONLY way to get 100% gone is a complete toss of your crop, wash down the entire room(s) ceiling walls and floor, all equipment growing media and buckets, etc. and wiping all electronics off too. Never ever get clones from an unknown source and really, you shouldn't go in the room in your street clothes. They are fragile and die easily but their strength lies in the many, may eggs they lay and pass immunity onto. I once sprayed the entire room, plants, etc. and they were back in a few hours lapping up the spray chemical as if it were beer.
    Good luck and be very thorough.

    Re: spider mites

    neem oil works great for a organic insect control. A little in the watering and it will keep out mites and other eating / sucking bugs.

    If you already have an infestation, then neem will work, but can take up to two weeks to get rid of a heavy infestation.

    Where as SNS 217 is derived from Rosemary extracts that disrupt the insect cell structure and permeability of its membranes. Cell contents then leak from damaged cells and the spider mites quickly die.

    I've used Sierra 217 and it works very well. Just remember what ever you use usually calls for more than one treatment.

    Re: spider mites

    First try environmental control of them by lowering your temp to 60 degrees and spray them with just water. If that doesn't work then try the Neem and keep the temp low. The low temp will make it a very hostile environment for them and the Neem will smother them. If that doesn't work and the infestation continues use pyrethrum foggers. The pyrethrum is derived from dandylions i believe and works very well if the Neem doesn't

    AND, if you go to their site (SNS's) you can get free samples. Not a lot, but enough to make an evaluation (I think about 4 ozs.). I got one each spider mite and mold...

    Excellent advice right here. I just sent in my request to try some. Just go to their contact page, select the sample you want to try and enter your name and address. +reps to you man.

    SNS209 sounds interesting. I want to try that on my plants. Acts as a barrier after the plant takes in the solution and prevents some bugs from sucking the juices out of your plants.

    Re: Spider mites

    Right 420 admin...I also like Georges idea from Medical Marijuana Growers Bible to do what ya said just be realy reaaallly careful
    an gently squish them between your fingers an be sure to wash after wards dont touch any other plants..
    DAMN I HAVE A LIL QUERKLE just starting out and I will be SURE TO KEEP THE LITTLE CREATURES OUT N OFF HER..

    George also says to get a Castille soap from health food store and make a spary bottle up of the soap but be lite with it.
    me I just took plain well water and doused the tops down so to keep them from moving in on her jusicy fruit. and I been a finger mashing them ALL WEEK and all her Sun hours and another thing I also have a electronic pest device I got for mice etc and it says it will keep out spiders and today there were not as many as the last four days. Peace
