    @Fastslappy do the adult lacewing cause any problems in flower, they are only predators while in the larvae form?

    I think persimilis mites might.. I had success using them to get rid of spider mites about a year ago... I didn't have full on webs yet, but I had spotted spider mites as far up as the sugar leaves on the top colas. it was prob like week 5 or so of 8 by the time I noticed them (on a few hard to reach plants in the back corner), so there was resin coating all the buds and leaves already.. anyway, I released phytoseiulus persimilis mites twice a few days apart and couldn't find any spider mites anywhere by week 7 or so... there were no persimilis on the buds or upper sugar leaves by that time either, but they must have gone up there and eaten everything because all the spider mites and eggs I had seen previously were gone... the really cool thing is I haven't reapplied since and I still find them (persimilis, the good guys) on the very bottom leaves sometimes when I harvest, so they're still around doing preventative maintenance almost a year later... I'll probably release another small batch soon anyway though, just to keep the population up...
    I'm interested in these too... I would worry they would eat beneficial mites too though since they're a larger probably more generalist predator... I use hypoaspis for fungus gnats and thrips and persimilis for spider mites so I wouldn't want to introduce anything that was going to eat those guys...

    Got my bug order today and turned them loose,nematodes, rove beetles, soil mites and green lacewing. Those rove beetles are very active little suckers.

    Picked up a cheap controller for less than $30 that seems to be working quite nicely. Mine's for temp but they also make one for humidity. You can set it for heating or cooling and you can set a different temp for on and off. I have it set up to bring in fresh air with a fan if the temp goes too high.

    Has neither. Just one setting with an acceptable range.

    Was curious myself because I'm using something similar other than having independent outlets for heating and cooling.

    But I want day/night controls. Just looking for options cheaper than the standard Titans, etc.
