I operate on a couple things, first, bugs dont attack a healthy plant, with that said nutes, water dont neglect at all. Second, prevention is the way to go , be on top of it, use stuff you can get online to prevent attacks. Keep away from things like Tomatoes, giant spider mite target. Bugs are bugs and they are always going to be around. Comon dishsoap and water if used at night and rinsed off in the am to avoid the hot sun will keep most of them away. Mix it light not to heavy on the soap and go give your girls a light spray at night than a little light spray in the am to wash her off. Bugs hate soap. Neem Oil is another great thing to use, if mixed with water and a wetting agent and sprayed every now and then will keep the bastards away.
Also if a leaf even looks weird at all I snip a bit and put under microscope to see if bugs or larve are there.. Catching these things early is the biggest thing. Bottom line is be prepared and hover like a mom to a child. Every chance you get check up on your girls and you will be fine. Good luck..
