So going against my own advice I bought a clone from a club. And wouldn't you know it I got mites...again So after chucking the two that were effected (also had powdery mildew) I noticed my 6 week flowering critical + has some scarred leaves and a small mite population on the lower branches. I was planning on cutting her down around 8-9 week. Or should I bite the bullet and harvest around 7-8 week? Dinafem says its a 50 day strain. Anyone have any thoughts on what I should do? And I can't use lady bugs.
Watch for any signs of serious spreading, clip the infected lower branches away gently, but know that it is exponential growth, they will still be everywhere and continue to spread. Just gotta harvest before they can explode in numbers.
On a side note, a limonene based spray worked well for me late into flower, and with diatomaceous earth I was able to almost completely eliminate mites. We had a small patch come back in the veg tent 2 months later, but only out of laziness of not following up.

Cool I'll check out that limonene spray you mentioned. And if not well I guess I'll just hope that they don't explode. I thought about taking it outdoors and spray with the hose. I read mites don't do well outdoors because of this reason.
