Tried about everything and they keep getting worse. At least 5-10 per leave on all plants 4-5 weeks in flower. What can I do to end this.

Have you tried Spinosad? That would be my first choice for Thrips, and I've never had any issues with it.

Also look into Thripex made by Koppert. It's a predatory mite (won't harm your plants) that feeds on thrips (and spider mites, actually). I've personally seen this stuff used effectively in massive commercial greenhouses. Never saw a single sign of thrips on any of the 100+ species we grew there over the course of three years. It's a long-lasting and effective biological control that will have absolutely no effect on flavor or odor unlike some spray on pesticides.

Both are natural and both are effective.

Mighty Wash won't ruin your buds but I'm not sure if it works on thrips. It's early enough that you can use Captain Jacks (spinosad).

Spinosad is known to break down rather quickly under light too (like 3 days or something like that).

Do I order from that link or from other site. Couldn't find on Amazon. Ever heard of using cinnamon, does it work?

I've had thrips and they were gone in a few days? I surely wouldn't cut my crop down over them. Russets or something like that, ya I've destroyed mommas and crop and got to scrubbin and cleaning..... but thrips no way.

Well thrips where I live are way way worse than spider mites. They don't do as much damage but it takes soooo much more to get rid of them. I hope that you dont have the troubles that I had.
I have had thrips twice, the first time I didnt think it was a big deal because I had a population of paper wasps grow a hive in my basement wall. I let them live and they eradicated the thrips. The second time I got them it was a horror show . I ended up using sooo much posion to finally kill them off. I think I lost 6 months of production because of it

You got me scared about robothrips now man haha What were you using and how often?

I posted a link for spinosad on amazon in my other post for you. OMRI listed for organic use, works good, and its inexpensive.

Well I harvested what I could , then I used avid and dino-mite 5 times over a 20 day period, to save my veg and mother plants, mean while I cleaned and cleaned. I pulled down my b/w plastics and resealed my gaps, I pulled down jip rock and re insulated and put up new dry wall. I made my room better over all, but man was it stressful.

Holy overkill!
You could have just bug bombed the room with pyrethrin.
Hot shot no pest strips also work great if you don't have much airflow. The vapor penetrates every nook & cranny.
