I'm trying to find some spray I can use on my flowers, as well as the rest of the plant. I've searched and looked and the only thing close is Fox Farms Don't Bug me.

I'm selectively spraying only leaves with a neem oil/ dish soap solution but I'd really like something for the buds.


I have thrips and want these fuckers gone. :evil: Thanks in advanced.
 
try 2 to 1 iso alchol and water, get some sticky thrip traps. or you can use monterey's with spinosad, you have to stay on top of them, it's a war.

Looks good man, any experience with it? I may just pick up that and the Don't Bug me FF spray.

Not sure if you mean me or victory, but just in case: yes, I have used it on an outdoor grow and the only issue I had were fuzzy caterpillars. Cute, fuzzy little bastards.

EDIT: Thanks for reminding me ojonice- I stopped applying 14 days before harvest. They recommend 10, but I felt a few extra days wouldn't hurt.

I hate thrips ... and in my battle I have found something that actually works hands down ... the pesticide is called Avid you can read about it HERE .... this shit will kill your thrips/mites .... dead.

You & I both. I gave them some Organocide and will be picking up Don't Bug Me in the morning. If neither of those work to my satisfaction I'll pick up some Avid.

I guess you can use The Fox Farms Don't Bug Me up until harvest. :-) Now if it works we'll be A-ok!

I'm hoping!! I've read nothing but good things. :-) But I like to have an assortment of things...I also put a Hot Shot Pest Strip in the room...on top of 5 yellow fly traps and one standard fly trap. If there fuckers want a war....then so be it.:twisted:
 
avid is illegal in some states, it DOES work the best though.you don't want it on your buds though. The iso and water works to, it's 2 parts alcohol to 1 part water, the alchohol dries out the larvae, as well as not hurting or affecting any plant material. you won't want to be in there after you spray,neither will the bugs.lol spray alot and often for a couple weeks. they also don't like temps under 70, so if you can run it cool for a couple weeks,that helps. remember,your in a war and you are america,they are the taliban.

I would not want to try this on buds since the iso can melt the trics.

lady bug killer is ok through harvest. It can knock pests down but won’t cure in flower
