    I believe he meant to say neem oil, any local pet or garden store will have some.

    whiteflies and afids

    they seem harmless enough, once they grow in numbers the destruction to your roots is irreverseable

    this will lead to massive yellowing of the plant

    It doesn't have to be dawn.

    I grew a sensi star out on the deck here in HI and it had those tiny white soil bugs all through veg and flower, BEAUTIFUL plant. The bugs I had weren't whiteflies or aphids though, I deal with those on all my garden plants, these were different. It was my first grow and I had a container with transparent sides so I could see the bugs in the soil but it didn't seem to harm the plant.

    SPINOSAD will blast anything back to where it should be.

    It is a bacteria that kills pests by ingestion or by contact. Contact takes a little longer.

    It is fantastic.

    google it for some more info.
