Spider mites a few days from harvest....should i use azamaz or let them go?
    #542019 - 03/31/11 09:34 PM (5 years, 8 months ago)

Hi everyone,

I was just scoping my first harvest and spotted 2 mites  on one bud and also some leaves infested towards bottom.  I'm doing a Scrog setup and trichomes are about 10% amber.  I have read that most mites will crawl up the stems, but I've also read that azamax is safe till day of harvest. 


how many is most mites in a case like this?  I dont really know how bad it is.  Anyone with some advice please guide me this is my first havest and was really patient ant trichs are perfect, but this is a huge bummer.


I was actually going to harvest this plant tomorrow morning thats how close it is to harvest.

maybe go buy a bunch of ladybugs and let em go in there? I'm pretty sure they're good for a small infestation like that.

My best run so far

If it is that close to harvest don't add anything just chop it.

I lol'd. If you've been smoking for any substantial amount of time, odds are you've smoked a LOT of spidermites.

Unless you started smoking medical herb and never bought from a shady dude.

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

Let them finish, try to suck up as many mites as possible with a vaccuum cleaner.

Depending on the severity I'd let them go definetly no azamax! Also if you hang the plants upside down to dry all the live mites will sprint to the top of the plant. This actually eliminates alot of mites off the flowers which is a good thing I prefer not to smoke bugs.
