Question about spider mites and drying.
    #349363 - 01/18/10 04:26 PM (6 years, 10 months ago)

After harvesting I noticed very minor spider activity on one of my buds. Must be a few survivors from the pyrethrum holocaust 3 weeks back. :tongue:

In any case, I've heard when you begin to dry the buds, the mites just leave because there isn't any "juice" to suck out of it anymore because the plants dead.

If this is in fact not the case, what should I do?

Make sure to keep any infected bud away from uninfected bud. Let it dry open air with a fan so it goes a little faster than normal. Then once you notice them gone or dead just continue as normal. I fucking hate spidmites.

Also a note on getting rid of spider mites. You need to bomb a room 1 week after the first bomb that you set off.  All the eggs that have been laid don't get killed.  Then they hatch and you hvae to get those fuckers before they lay another hatch of eggs.

i will apologize for the fact that i should have said that when you have spider mites and you go into the drying process the living spider mites will leave and then you are left with a web covered plant so in all reality your basically smoking web covered weed.

I had some problem with spider mites, even while it was drying, they were moving from bud to bud, so i placed some yellow sticky traps between the buds, and when i took them out to cure, most of the mites were on the traps :wink:
