    Hey all. I was extremely proud of how both of my rooms were doing. Kicking ass, running better than ever.

    Then today, BAM. Out of nowhere, I see a plant with dying pistils. I rush to pull it out of the canopy. Go straight for the digital scope and laptop. Immediately on the plant I find the fuckers. Wiggling around. Plenty of them.

    Only the single plant had damage, however I picked a few leaves of plants in that same area of canopy with what looked to be the beginning of damage, and sure enough, more broad mites.

    I believe I have caught this at a decent time. From what I understand, by the time you see damage it is an infestation. And I believe that to be true after seeing mites on my other plants. This room has 70 plants in 10 gal pots, at day 20 of flower. They are phenomenally healthy.

    Within the hour I hit them HARD with Green Cleaner at 2oz/Gal.

    Already thinking about Forbid 4F, PFR97, OGBiowar and Predatory Mites to round it all off at the end when the sprays have to stop.

    I have another room right on the other side of the wall filled with OG's. They are phenomenally healthy as well, although they will be getting an identical treatment as it is likely that they would hitch a ride on clothes/shoes to the other room.


    People talked about Russet mites in the early 2010's as though it was an automatic game over. But it's 2018 now. Is there really no strong treatment to fight them? I'm assuming the life cycle is what makes them so difficult to fight. And the fact that they actually kill your plant.

    If anyone has a recipe, regimine, etc on how I might be able to battle them out to the end of week 8, I'm all ears. Just to be clear, there is not a speck of damage anywhere else within the room. I have to assume they came in on an egg that hatched. I fucked it all up by not preventative spraying. Fuck.

    Hitting them Forbid 4F, PFR 97, Forbid 4F, PFR 97, Forbid 4F and then drop in the Swirskii's.
