Hey Rosie, did you have a problem with little dead pirate bugs?

One of the biggest complaints about Ladybugs was all the little dead bodies. LMAO

Mostly, the posts said the bodies were on the ground, in the pots, or on the leaves. Most people said they don't walk on the buds because it's too sticky.

Also, another sure thing about Lady Bugs.... if you don't give them a home and a place to breed, most of them fly right into the HID lights and (from what everyone said) they pop like popcorn. LMAO Sad, really. Most people report the entire lot of bugs (700 to 5000) are dead in only a few days to a week.

I could definitely pick a beneficial critter that is more suitable than the Lady Bugs. However, they are all ugly and the Lady Bugs are sooooo cute. LMAO Get over it, Hack. LOL

We'll see. I am spraying Axamax in the room today. Tomorrow or the next day, I'll put the new plants in. I have been inspecting the plants in the veg tent and can't find a single mite or egg.

No new activity on the clones but they are covered with dead eggs and that freaks me out.

However, whatever I decide on, once the flower room is filled, there's no nursing or treating or spraying them any more. I will have to remain bug free for 10 weeks or else use the predator bugs.

I guess will will see. I am thinking about a light spray on each plant before I put it in the room. However, when I pull the plant from the veg tent to move it to the flower room, I trim all the lower branches and transplant it. I'm not sure, adding the additional shock of a foliar spray is a real good idea.

Tho I do not do indoor growing...

My 2 cents, when we have bugs we spray every three days. We do not wait the recommended 7-10. We do 5-6 applications.

I haven't found any dead ones yet. I have started rinsing my pot off because of dust outside and I may rinse my indoor. The amount of ick that comes off my outdoor is too much. I like the pirate bugs because you can see them. most of my beneficials can't be seen.

Hack if you want to keep using the Azamax (I use it and like it). You can spray it on the plants until the buds get a little bigger. Between the light, air and plants metabolizing it, it will be gone by harvest.
By week 4-5 I wont spray it anymore. I then move to using it as a soil drench because the plants will suck it up and send it throughout the canopy. Then after about 7-9 days, the plant will completely metabolize it away. I add some every couple weeks as preventative. I have never tasted it in my smoke.

As unbelievable as it is, I have not seen any signs since I sprayed. I will spray one more time just for preventative.

I harvested the flowering crop and I have another in the room flowering. No sign there either.

Keep your fingers crossed. LOL
