Spider mites in flower

    Hey guys,

    I had the worst situation ever pop up two days ago. I found a few spider mites in a room that is about 3 weeks into flower. I have delt with spider mites a few times over the years but haven’t had them show up in Flower this early.

    Room has 32 large plants and I found them on one plant. I don’t spray anything once bud sites show and I am not interested in any nasty pesticides for this application.

    There is no visible damage or webbing anywhere, I just found maybe 10 mites total. I stripped all of the big leaves out of that plant in the hopes that I would slow the infestation down. With other plants in the room, I am considering just chopping that one down.

    Any ideas or suggestions on something I can use to keep them in check until the rounds down?

    Not a big deal, if i have this happen i start doing a good soak on both sides of the leaves with water, if its gotten bad i will do a few times a day, usually once though, it blasts them off and suffocates them, usually a week of that into week 4 or 5 will knock them down good and i rarly see much signs at harvest following this if noticed at 3 week defo
