So I'm officially two weeks into flower today. However last Saturday I woke to spider mites on one of my plants!
I rushed it through emergency treatment (cold rinse, mild plant safe soapy wash, Hot shots bug strip, MASS CO2 for 3 hours and,... Neem oil).
This morning I did my normal hour inspection for mites on the flowering plants, just to see one mite(first sence treatment). Today is the final day I can spray Neem oil. So I've been thinking predatory mites to safeguard my last 6-7 weeks of flower.
Issue is they come in jars of like 1000 mites, and that is the small order. Also some species of mite can't handle dry climates, or cold climates. I'm worried my low humidity will kill them, or excessive heat...
What would be my best TYPE of predator mite? OR does anyone have any better ideas?
I live in Colorado and keep the flower room around 80F during the day(vented hood, isn't), night temps around 76F. Humidity is hard to keep up during the day. So 35% daytime and 45% at night. I can crank that up too. Tonight I sprayed the Neem and turned up my humidifier, so 98% right now.
