I use Neem oil for preventative against atacks, just follow instructions on container. But for active infestations get some Azamax and mix it in water(follow instructions for drench)and pour into grow medium. Also mix up some and put in spray bottle and spray all the leaves on the plants. Give everything a good washing with it then wait about 5 days and do it again. Wait for at least 7 days after application before harvesting. good luck

I'm not sure if "Azamax" is Organic. "Organocide" is and it kills 25 insects including spider mites. Kill them bugs!!! Green blessings.

I personally have really had no luck at all with either neem oil or products made from neem oil (like azamax) in eradicating mites. The only things I have found to actually be effective are Avid, Floramite, and Forbid. I do not use neem oil at all because of the nasty nasty taste.

Organocide is the shiznit.

If I were you I would mix up some organocide with warm water in a big tub.

Mix it up really good then dunk a whole plant except for the roots. Let it sit submerged for 10 seconds. I would do that once a week for three weeks.

After the infestation has passed, spray your plants down with the organocide at least every 2 weeks as a preventative measure.

:yeahthat: :goodposting:

If ya wanna play with them, try all the other stuff. If you want to be 100% rid of them, do as THG suggest.

I prefer FORBID myself, never had to do a repeat application. Never have had to use my Floramite that I bought to alternate with the Forbid. No experience with Avid at all.

Do NOT use any of these in flower.

Forbid is also my favorite. I will use it up to 2 weeks into flower. After that, it is cold showers if my girls have mites.

My plants are generally too large to do a dunk.

It doesn't eradicate them, but it washes a bunch of them off and I believe that the cold water slows their reproduction also.

FUM, Azamax is organic

IME, neem and azamax worked fine for mites but I've never had a serious outbreak.

THG, I agree the cold shower or a cool/cold grow room slows them down

Ive been using Azamax for my mite problems. Seems to work pretty well, i wont see any on my plants, and after removing heavily egged leaves and doing some extra spray treatments in the following 2 weeks i havent seen any sign of a come back/spread.

Id suggest going with THG, shes the master around here ;]

Personal choice. It won't harm them. And there is only supposed to be a 2 weeks residual, but I'd rather be safe than sorry (however, as a side note, this is probably silly for me as I am an old lady and have abused my body horribly over the years). I just don't want to spray too far into flowering as I don't really want to smoke the stuff. Sometimes I will go 3 weeks into flowering if she is just starting to bud.

I thought it was more like a 28 day residual, but I'd have to dig out the sheet to be sure.

In any event, anything that is literally just drops/gallon is something you want to have plenty of time to dissipate. Very potent stuff:holysheep:

I've never had to do a repeat application on the same plant. Truly a one shot deal with this stuff.

The usual procedure for me, is to hit clones a day or 2 before 12/12 and that's it. So far, so good.

I don't quite understand your question--Are you asking if it is a systemic?

Just had mites myself. I used dynamite and plant vitality plus, and would recommend them both as it seems to have done the job. But for flowering plants you want to try mighty wash. I've read loads of great reports on it. And it says you can use it all the way during flowering. Also use a vacuum cleaner to suck the ****** off your buds. Good luck with it mate.
