    They may not be organic but are used in the food industry and when used correctly are effective and "safe"(apples to apples with forbid, avid IMHO). You close up the room for 3 days, (no air in or out). After that I dispose of the strip and bust one out in about a month. It's all about prevention. My garden has been clean as a whistle for the past 6-7 months here, since I got rid of the recurring root aphids.

    @ bowlful--you are right, you can't just stick a strip in there. where alot of new guys go wrong and the strips are ineffective. also I've seen people use them and not seal the room. not gonna work.

    gotta treat, clean, attack them from multiple angles. I guarantee that it will AT LEAST increase your chances of ridding a regular mite infestation.

    • Dichlorovos evaporates in a very short time , in fact a lab owner explained that if it was found in a test by the time it was retested that it would no longer be found .. The controversial discussion about the safety of this in general has been argued relentlessly on the net , sad to say most people are not even educated upon the subject in the first place .​

    if you think your just going to get rid of broadmites with a $8 no pest strip, your in for a hell of a disappointment.

    yah well I don't either of them. and if you didn't notice I said "regular mites".

    funniest part is I almost said in my last post---

    - chuck this is in reference to regular mites, not broad mites. but I was hoping your would figure it out.

    one guy puts it on par with those products. Sure it's safer for the mites also.It doesn't get into the plant and stay there for 60 days like those 2 products, which is what is needed to rid them

    Ok...update .....

    Avid be here on Saturday ...2 ounces for 40$

    Bought 2 no pest strips

    Room is big but I think I can get temps up to 120 if no fan n humidifier n baseboard heat on.

    How long does tempneed to be maxed? Should I use strips during heatwave? Or after?

    N thanx for everyone offering clones n cuts but I'm good..I have a MN army to fill that room up when its clean..I can't afford forbid or other pricey concentrates. I had big outdoor plans but just gonna have to reload the innies with my stuff. I believe I figured out how this happened too. I been beating myself up the last week trying to figure where I went wrong n here it is.

    4-5 weeks ago I stumbled upon new grow store in paw paw n bought few things...lady tells me her friend owned greenhouse n went under n had hundreds of various pits outside for free! So my cheap ass grabbed. 2 dozen n there it is. I didn't wash pots..figured nothing was gona survive an empty pot through winter.

    I am not positive about your method, found this for bedbugs

    Bed bugs exposed to 113°F will die if they receive constant exposure to that temperature for 90 minutes or more. However, they
    will die within 20 minutes if exposed to 118°F. Interestingly, bed bug eggs must be exposed to 118°F for 90 minutes
    to reach 100% mortality. Note that whole room heat treatments (see below) are based on a thermal death point of
    113°F, yet these treatments have been very successful. This is due to the use of powerful fans to create convection
    currents within the heated room. These currents heat the bed bugs very rapidly, thus increasing their mortality
