    I have been trying to find information on the effects of spider mites on human health, especially when the medicine smoked may contain spider mites. With high temps, spider mites strive and toward the end of flowering, one doesn't want to spray anything on the bud that could compromise the quality.

    However I did not find anything convincing, I read many post on forum but more than opinions, I would like to find facts or any study that has been conducted. We all have smoked at one point weed that was contaminated and we are still here but what are the long term side effects?

    A lot of the treatments for mites are plant-derived like neem or pyrethrum. I feel safe following the labels as far as when and how much to apply.

    Neem oil works slick. It kind of stinks, so I usually spray one plant at a time in the bathtub shower stall. The easiest time to hit the plants is when you switch to the twelve hour cycle, or you repot your seedlings into bigger pots. That is all it will take to keep your crop clean, at least in my experience.

    Or you could just keep your setup organized and spider mites are never a problem. Don't even remember the last time I saw one.
