Do u spray the buds 2 I’m almost in harvest
Yes but I would highly recommend doing a bud wash at harvest.
If there is not a continuous supply of aphids, leaving a cap full of honey, or raisins soaked in water will also feed the ladybugs.
I’ve used ladybugs three times, half of them fly into the lights or fans and die, the other half just dies. Now the predator mites I had luck, but seems u have to keep replacing them.
I read that diluted grain alcohol kills spider mites. Wouldn’t it just evaporate off the buds pretty quick and not leave a bad taste? I am just spit ballin here though.
Regular alcohol is in most of these sprays, the best solution for them I’ve found so far is to dunk the entire plant pot and all in a barrel of water for a few minutes then let it dry out. Alcohol also kills powdery mildew but the thing is all these sprays eventually turn photo toxic and make the leaves crispy.
Maybe someone will post that old thread on a recipe for the spray, it was like a tablespoon of alcohol, soybean oil, rosemary, thyme oil etc. I just can’t remember. #burnsanotherjoint
