    I have recently used a product called "Wipe Out" which is a ready to use product and it is also a non systemic product. It is awesome after one application of this stuff all of my mites and eggs were destroyed and my plants look great!!! I highly recommend it. After doing some research on it is a "Translaminar" product so it only absorbs into the leaves of the plant and stays there for up to 14 days.

    I would recommend green lacewing larvae over predatory mite's much faster acting damn things are vicious and effective

    Just use a product called "WIPEOUT" after one application it took care of the mites and the eggs. You don't have to be a chemist and mix your own stuff that most of the time burns your plants

    I dont have habanera peppers at any local store around me... i know this is a terribly old post, so sorry if this is just annoying for you to receive yet another reply on here, but you seem like you are genuinely interested in helping people.

    Sorry to digress a bit from the post but not really. Week 3 of flower. Tried lady-bugs, alot died. (i think they focused on mating before eating) Should i get more ladybugs along with some food (Hirts nature nector) for them, so that they live longer/offspring live to eat the mites. Or get some predatory mites? i don't know if either of these will be effective quickly enough.

    Have you tried either of these? would you have mentioned them in the first place if they worked better than pepperwater?

    Lady bugs are useless on mites. Good for thrips. Lace Wing larvae works. Predator mites are hard to get to work and take time.

    Are you in the USA or Canada? Gives me an idea on what you can buy to fight these bugs. Do you have a 1 gallon sprayer? Also do you have any liquid silica that many growers use?

    lady bugs dont eat mites, they eat soft body insects like caterpillars, aphids, whiteflies. great to have in the garden but not for mites sadly. also tip from experience, like any insecticide used exclusively, it will fail to exterminate after a few generations of mites (so a few weeks to months worth of use). deffinitely switch it up every so often, ie neem, cedar, soapy water, iso.

    2 weeks to get predator mites to work. They want a narrow band of humidity and temp too.

    Okay this is from the Al Bundy guy whitebb2727 but I have used this too closer to harvest in flower.

    1. Spinosad by itself. 2 tblspoons per gallon of water. Made by either Bonide as Dr Jacks Dead Bug BRew or Monterey also sells it. Home Depot sells the spray but I like the concentrate with a 1 gallon sprayer.

    (see spraying instructions in #2)

    Spinosad can also be added to your water (see bottle instructions) when you water the plant. So you can do both.

    2. Fels Naptha soap - sold in any grocery store or Wal Mart under detergent aisle a big bar of soap $1.19. Get a cheese grater at the dollar store and 2 quart plastic jars at dollar store. Grate about 1 inch of the soap into jar. Add hot water. Maybe microwave. Let cool and shake. Take about two tablespoons to 1 gallon sprayer and spray undersides of leaves and they the entire plant.
    upload_2016-12-1_8-51-25.png
    3. Combine #1 and #2. Al Bundy guy has recommended spraying both alone or mixing the two.

    4. I tried this version too. Most growers use Silica. It makes the plants tougher and protects them from mites too. You can water in during veg and flower. You can also spray as a foliar spray up to 3-4 weeks into flower. 10 ml per gallon. IF you only use 1/2 gallon of water use 5 ml of Silica. Sold at grow stores as Silica Blast and other brands.
    4a. In Veg use Neem oil, Silica Blast and Liquid Aloe or Dr. Bronners Peppermint Soap (liquid). Per gallon of water about 1.5 to 2 tbls spoons of Neem oil, 10 ml or 1.5 tblspoons of Silica and 2 tblspoons of liquid Aloe or 2 tblspoons of bronners soap.
    4b. In Flower use 2 tblspoons of Spinosad, probably 5 to 7 ml of Silica and 2 tbls spoons of liquid aloe or 2 tbls of Bronners Peppermint soap..

    You can buy Dr. Bronners Peppermint soap in any drug store, grocery store, Vitamin Shoppe, GNC. It has Peppermint oil and Hemp oil which can kill mites. They hate Peppermint too.

    I would spray then let it sit for 45 minutes then turn on the fans.
    If you are 4 weeks plus into flower, let it sit on the plants for about 4.5 to 5 hours then rinse off with water in sprayer. Turn fans on to dry before lights come back on.

    Ok. Thank you.

    Just to clarify,
    Spinosad, silica, Fels Naptha soap and peppermint soap? - water and foliar with spinosad and possibly silica.

    Just wondering so that i'm not ignorantly performing steps, what is the advantage of the gallon sprayer over handheld ones? (I have 4 girls)

    Thank you so much for the help so far

    Gallon sprayer has a little nozzle wand that can easily get in and under everything. That along with providing a finer mist droplets ensures much better coverage and worth the $20
