Should I double up for mite eradication/control?

    MY only problem with things like this, is the oil's. I'm not a fan of using any "oil" on my plants.
    Back when I had disp's. I had to turn some product's down by growers who used those oil's. They would use them close to harvest, and you could actually smell them on the product.

    Proper use is key!

    @Dr. Who I just want to start by saying that I'm sorry you had to witness that game in person. My condolences...Would've been a good week for Lions tickets. (That game was still a shit-show though)

    Thank you all for your help so far, I can't say that enough. I've honestly never let my plants get this bad and am taking every step to prevent it again.

    I'm not a fan of oils, I have to agree with the time/space-traveler here.

    I am up-potting some and after the transplant stress I'm going to spray the forbid again, will that help if I do have thrips?

    The room they are moving into is better protected and has been bombed recently. I'm treating the ladies before moving and keeping up on regular treatment until flower. I'm stubborn, these effing bugs are going to DIE.

    Am I crazy thinking I can treat a thrip infestation? I've battled mites and have won, but thrips are a new monster to me. I'm still not seeing any of the little worms on the leaves? Does everyone agree this is thrips? Or could mites still be the bad guys?

    You guys and all that knowledge you've got, rock btw. :cool: :peace: :bigjoint:

    That is definitely thrip damage. Monterey Garden Insect Spray (a weak spinosad insecticide) wipes out thrips easy. One application and they are done (spray both tops and bottoms of leaves, bottom first). Shit happens, clean it up and move on. :bigjoint:

    They are, and @Odin* is giving rock solid advise. Follow his suggestion.
