Just noticed that the tips of all four plants have deformed leaves , have never seen this before any Ideas
I am Hydro no soil so I don't know where they are coming from but that is a good ideaTry some thrip shields - just an upside down paper or foam plate propped up on toothpicks, bigger than the pot diameter, with a hole for the stem to poke through. This will keep the larvae from ever making it to the soil when they drop from the plant to pupate, and does a great and cheap job messing up their life cycle!
cheers SA 1 week into 12/12 so need to go hard , have drenched them in pesticidel soap might slow them down till I get hold of some AvidOh #@%$!!!!
Avid. You need avid NOW.
You're not flowering yet are you? You can apply up to week 2 of flower, so you have til then to kill them dead.
It's on Amazon and it is painfully expensive and it will suggest azamax at a quarter the price; heck buy an azamax while you're at it to do a rotating treatment, but hit them with the abamectin knockout blow first!
0.5mL/L in a spray bottle (get some cheap .5ml dropper pipets, accuracy is important, you don't want to overdo it) plus one drop dish soap. It's a systemic but to work properly needs a surfactant to spread it evenly.
Wear gloves, long sleeves, and a painters respirator. If you get any on your skin wash it off fast with soap. It can lead to a rash like poison ivy.
Spray all over and under the leaves, mist the soil surface, and if you run any HID lights, turn them off and stick with low wattage stuff for a few days after each application.
Keep the bottle in secondary containment (I use a heavy ziploc), same for the sprayer and label it well, and wrap up your used droppers before disposal. You really don't want to touch this stuff by mistake.
