I would try AzaMax or Neem Oil. I just got hit with spider mites here in Portland, OR with 3-4 weeks of flowering left and it seems to be helping. I’ve tried a lot of other remedies to no avail. Good luck!

Use this…it works great. I use it.

Tabacco Juice recipe

Take 3 strong ciggeretes or more soak them over night in water adding hot chili power the hotter the better. And
Boil it for 2 to 3 miniutes, let it cool off. Then using ladies nylon socks strain other wise you won’t be able to spray it. and spray the plants 3 to 4 times a week. You can add safer soap if you like to the mixture.
(make absolutly sure you use gloves/face protection while handling and spraying)



Thanks never herd of that I’ll put that one :point_up: in the bank :metal:t2::metal:t2::metal:t2::metal:t2:

Hey, what is ‘safer soap’? The winds been blowing and these little buggers blew in and infected my plants.

Thanks ! How much water do you use when making your nicotine spray?

I use about 3 or 4 cups cause of evaporation. and I use about a half pack of smokes and get some hot chile sauce. I just went through this just a couple of weeks before harvest. Dam mites…lol
