will they die in the buds or on the floor? Can I vacuum them up when their dead? I’ve noticed some spider webs in there aswell now. What else could i use instead of the ladybugs then? My plants are 8 weeks into flower I don’t wanna ruin them, my others are 3 weeks into flower and I’m about to put 3 more in there. I’m doing a 12/12 from seed perpetual tent so I kinda wanna keep all pesticides safe for use around budding plants.Have you thought what happened when pests are gone? Also there is a natural life cycle, meaning some will die anyway. With no where to go, they WILL die in your tent
Spinosad breaks down in like 3 days, I wouldn't be concerned with using it up until the last 5 or 6 days on the whole plant. You will need multiple applications, I suggest 3 applications each 6 to 7 days apart. Thorough coverage, especially under leaves and drench the soil also.You want to avoid the actual buds though right? I've also been using spinosad to get rid of thrips but wasn't aware I could use it so late into flower.
