rosemary essential oil.

Hey guys,
So... about 6 months ago I took a clone from a "friend" WHO KNOWINGLY had a mite issue and...you know..didn't care much about ruining my life with the ol trojan horse trick.

Luckily I have 3 rooms and the issue was in a single closet.  Those little fucks are so terrible that I even entertained such ideas as that they were spawned by the government to eat the beloved medicine... Iit was like watching my kids die... fuck

Hated neem. gross. doesn't work.

Anyhoo, I came to tell you about the natures miticide. Rosemary. I was researching reports of old school growers who know of its powers and who have kept rosemary plants alongside the goods with great success.
    Rosemary oil as a miticide in botany:
Kills adults
Kills eggs (!)
Repels

I ended up getting distilled oil for 6 bucks, and my standard mix was 30 drops for a standard hand sprayer. mixed with a quarter teaspoon of veg oil and a few drops of dish soap applied foliar spray during the dark cycle.

Kills on contact. smells good on the plants ... REPELS! if there are any mites they will wanna bhe anywhere BUT near your plants :laugh:  Also, of course, great for maintenance or the suspected onset of an issue.

I grew for 20 years and never saw a mite till recently and boy... I never wanna go down that road again!

cheers to the win

20 years and not one mite is pretty damn lucky man.  That's crazy.

I had sure heard of em^.  I guess my luck was a tightly sealed city grow with mostly seed plants.
Definitely had some shitty runs from the fungus gnats and whiteflies, aphids. I usually suspected soil at those times.
  I thought all those were minor compared to the mites...
Haha its like plant AIDS.  I'll probably never take a clone from anyone again.. " oh its what strain?? yeah, hand me a seed"

I've had good success getting rid of small infestations with just water.. I think it just knocks the mites eggs off the leaves so no new mites are born. My uncle used to just blow cigarette smoke on his plants to make them bug resistant.

Be sure to read up on "autoflower"/ruderalis seeds before choosing them. Unless you NEED autos, you might do much better with anything else. No more hoarding ultra genetics! We need more of the best not less!
