Sup guys i recently noticed spider mites on one of my plants that i moved indoors from my outdoor location. i also seem to have a pretty big fruit fly infestation too. They have been indoors under 2 cfl lights for over a month now and 2 weeks ago i noticed a few and killed them, but about a week ago i noticed alot more and really went on a killing spree, and vacuumed up a pile of bugs that were around the soil. There don't seem to be as many spider mites any more but there is stills some, but the fruit fly infestation is still pretty hardcore. i herd of iso and water, and a little bit of dish soap and water but dident try eather because i think they might effect the taste or harm the plant. is there anything else i can do and what can i do about the fruit flys?
i've got pretty much the same deal, revegged a plant outdoors and spider mites came in with it
not sure what fruit flies find to eat on your plant, but the iso is usually a spider mite treatment
caution with it is needed because it can dissolve trichomes
100 percent pure neem oil, 5 ml with a few drops of dish soap and 2 litres of water , shake and spray
put a 1/4 full can of pepsi in the room near the plants with seran wrap over the top of the can with a few small holes in the wrap...easily caught..they go in the can and wont find way back out,,and just change cans when ya caught a bunch..dam near impossible to kill them all and they will keep coming back if ya dont find the source their after..distract and remove with the pop can..( sorry i just hate putting shit on my plants).

just a pot head trying to save some cash with a little help from mother nature........and from one, pot smoker/grower,to another thnx for any advice given..heres one on me()...
For the flies, get something that is bright yellow (I use the plastic lid from a peanut butter jar as it is bright yellow).
Smear some honey on the yellow thing.
Put yellow thing near plants where it gets good light.
Flies are attracted to both the yellow colour and the sweet honey smell.
Flies get stuck in honey.
Flies are fucked.
Fucked flies can't fuck and can't breed.
I agree with the one who said he hates to pute anything on his plants. I agree, chems on bud means chems in lungs. SO, for the spidermites I use soapy water sprayed foamy onto effected leaves. In flowering IF I get spidermites I do a simple rub with clean fingers on the leaves killing the existing spiders and removing badly damaged leaves. When my plants get to the actual flowering stage nothing but clean water goes on the plants.
I came, I learned, I left. Thanks to all who helped me. If you dont like my advice then dont use it! Otherwise go suck my BONG!
neem oil is organic and non toxic
