I don't have co2, what about turning off exhaust fans for an hour or two and opening a few of these in the sealed tent?Spider mites are the borg. You can blast em off with water. Buy they're just multiplying. They can completely encase entire plants pretty fast. You can if you have CO2 poison them. Turn the PPM up to 10000 ppm. Leave if for an hour or two. And then restore to previous levels. Plants won't die. Bugs and Animals will.
I mean if the math works. But leakage. Shut down the intake and exhaust and maybe block em off. Cubic foot of air at sea level average conditions is about 36.6 grams. If in right on my math. You have i think 96 cubic feet of air. And let's call that 3500 grams for the sake of easy math. So 1% of that is 35 grams. So 2 or 3.. but I'm pretty high for awesome math questions. But 3 should for sure. One hour. Then vent. Be aware that's double the theoretical 8 hour day max limit. So not crazy dangerous or anything.I used a calculator that suggested I'd need approx 1 cubic foot of co2 to raise ppm to 10,000 in a tent my size (4x4x6, 1.2mx1.2mx1.8m). There's approx 50g of co2 in a cubic foot, these cartridges contain 16g of 99% co2, so 3-4 of them to gas the mites??
Well you might have to water cure to actually drown the little bastards. Because they're so hard to eliminate. I go full nuclear. Make the room smell like a swimming pool in a hospital operating room. Like I'm Howard Hughes.Cheers, I've ordered co2 so will give it a go. Won't kill eggs, no, but if I can kill enough to allow for harvest and some drying, then perhaps retreat again in 3-4 days?? Or once I've trimmed them all up and got rid of all leaves maybe treat again then?
I've ordered some smoke bombs to treat grow area once its clear.
Once buds are harvested and dried will the spiders die off? A
