pictures in a few
My first grow and everything was going great, Now 6 weeks into flower I get what I think is spider mites. The video I seen had them a red color and these look like little black bugs.
Last nite I covered them with mighty wash by npk ind. This morning I can actually see the film it leaves on the plant. My worries is, this late in flower and I will be spraying this 1 more time with mighty wash and in a few days power wash is suppose to clean off anything left from the mighty wash. Won't this be washing off tricombs????? It will only have 2 weeks left when I get done with all this washing, is that enough time for it to still be a frosty bud? I seen a guy washing his plants in the shower, I look at that like the buds will be no good???????
Here is some info on this grow

No pics here or your journal and your link up there is not very noticable.

if I sprayed the underside and tops of leaves for good measure. Will they climb into the buds to get away from the mighty wash? Also wont the might wash, wash off the tricombs? Will it effect the potency? I bought this stuff, just in case, but was saying to myself, I will never put this shit on my babies. But it was that, or throw these away after being eatin up by mites.
Been raising these now since Feb.12 Still amazed the way my first time turned out. This shit was ez until the mites. This is all personal weed, so if the mights crawled up into the bud. They better be fireproof, cause I will be smoking them.....lol Still very little smell coming from them, and the smell is nothing I've ever smelled before. Sure don't smell like the good skunk that is bought. Got about 8, 8" colas and a ton that are 4 and 5". Looking at 2 weeks on one of them and 3 on the other two. That will make both at 8 weeks. I sprayed these and didn't clean the grow box. The second spray will be tomorrow. Does anyone have a good chem. to clean a wooden grow box? My thought was soap and bleach.
No, they win by sheer numbers and small size. It's almost impossible to be totally rid of them once they have established in your grow. Every time I have had them over the last 12 years 4 or 5, I have eventually, finally gotten rid of them by killing off the habitat, my grow room, entirely, and restarting from seed.
From my observations, they hide under the leaf where the round petiole meets the flat surface under the leaf. In that sharp corner, spray just wont reach and larva or adults that happen to be there will not be sprayed and will survive to begin the colony again. You may go weeks before they become noticable the second time if you did a good job, but this also works against you, because after that amount of time, you're sure they're gone and have stopped looking for sign. Don't stop looking for mite sign until you harvest, even though you've sprayed.

Yes they will affect the buds and will fuck your harvest. They are immune to the mighty wash now, you need another miticide applied on plants ,surrounding areas and re-applied 5 days later vacuuming daily.
