Man this sucks. Glad it isn't spider mites. But I'm wondering how the hell they got in there? I've never had a bug problem before aside from some fungus gnats last grow. I guess every grower growing long enough deals with bugs at some point. MAybe I've just been lucky these past 7 years?
The only thing I can think of is I defoliated one night and took 5 days to pick up the vegetation (dumb move I know) but I don't think that would just cause them.
I guess what I'm trying to figure out is how to prevent them in the future.
I've been reading up on spinosad and it seems pretty safe. Has a short half life in sunlight. Just not sure how it will be smoked.
When applying do I have to go crazy and make sure I cover the whole plant top and bottom of leaves? I got 6 huge plants. Any face and eye protection? Dust mask? Safety glasses? I read skin absorption is low, but gloves probably still a good idea. Does this need to be done before lights out?
