    Hot Shot Pest Strips can be used during any stage from my understanding. I have used them through veg and flowering, and I didnt see any ill effects from it. By the way, this is a topic covered a hundred times over again, even just a few threads down from you.

    Yep HotShot works good. Also just miss the plants with water, particularly rhe underside of the leaves and that will slow them down till the HotShot kicks in. In my experience the hotshot will kill 75% of them in the first 24 hours. Eggs hatch every 3 or 4 days so leave the hotshot hanging for about 10 days and then you should be able to bag the hotshot in a zip lock bag and save it for next time. Generally once you get spider mites you will always have them so be prepared.

    Hey I got em two crops in a row. Always during flowering too. The little bastards like bud. The strips do work, are safe and easy to use. Do remove them a couple weeks before harvest. Next time I will use them for preventative measures before they show up. It takes a week of treatment to kill off the larvae as well. All this info I got was from these forums. Good luck.
