    How can I treat my fresh clones for spider mites?

    I took some clones and I think they have spider mites. I have sprayed all my veg plants with insecticide just in case. Can I treat my clones yet? they were taken about 3-4 days ago and I dont think they have roots yet.

    If I was concerned about introducing some pest/disease into my grow, I would isolate the cuts and use wettable sulfur after they have rooted.
    That will allow the clones to root and also keeps any nasties out of your grow space.
    5x5 grow space

    4-17gal totes self-made UC system.


      Dealing with the borg is hard and its going to be hard on clones. 91% ISO 50/50 with water sprayed every 2 days will kill adults. Captain Jacks Dead Bug or Spinosad every 2 days will kill adults. Spray at least 4 times (over 8 days) then watch for them to come back. I read that rosemary oil will explode the eggs. I myself dont want rosemary on my weed, so I have not tried it!

        I remove every leaf bigger than an inch in diameter and spray alcohol twice a day
