Fuggin Bugs

  1. Can I spray my plant for bugs or anything to do to rid the bugs.they're on week 6 of flower heavy sativa strain
     
  2. I would suggest riding it out at week 6. But if it’s that bad green cleaner can be sprayed up to the day of harvest.
     
  3. Thx man yeah it's not terrible but just kinda blows.its been a rough year growing outside in Florida.lots of rain and just shitty this year
     
  4. What bugs are they? There are some biological insecticides, but spraying flowers is never a good practice. Other option would be introducing predators.

  5. Thrips.im thinking I won't be harvesting till end Oct maybe early November sprays I know are a bad I dea this late.know of any online places to buy predators
     
  6. A quick google search would yield some results on beneficial predators (I think Evergreen and Arbico are fairly reputable). I get all mine from our supplier. I would suggest Orius insidiosus and cucumeris as primary predators for thrips. I'm in the midwest and spring brought in more thrips than we have ever seen. Normally they are just a nuisance, this year they were causing a good bit of flower/pistil damage. Haven't had an issue at the tail end of the season, however.

    That being said, at week 6 there won't be much time to combat them. You can release Orius to help keep them at bay, but at this point cucumeris probably wont be too beneficial.
     
  7. Thx for the info
