Growth Stage: First week or 2 of flowering

I will start with the spider mite issue first.

 

I have tried Homemade soap mix, Oil mix, Wettable sulphur miticide, tau fluvalinate ( Yates Mavrick) and a couple others which i will find the bottle and list.
I have had the best results with the soap mix which seems to rid them off the plants for a few days to a week.
Im just worried about the damage it may be doing to the plant with the constant cycle of sprays and once buds develop will the soap mix have any bad effects?
Would I be best to just keep the population low by misting them of the plant with just water once budding all the way to harvest or is there something available to rid them all together?

I will post up pictures of the plants and also a close up of the mites if anyone is able to identify what species I might have a better chance at treating them.

The second issue is with another plant a Ducksfoot cross.

 

The plant was flowering fine for a couple weeks then overnight one side of the plant looked like it was dying off all leaves dry and drooping.

It was a re veg plant that flowered early then started vegging again now has returned to flower.

I will post up a few pictures of it also.

I will have to post up picture later as this plant is at a friends.

 

Cheers in advance.

Yeah i was thinking of trying Neem only one i could find was Eco-Neem at bunnings so i went with the sulphur miticide instead.

Any chance you know if its the same stuff or better of going to a hydro or nursery store?

Cheers.

Cheers everyone.

I was trying to stay away from the harsh chems but seems like it might be neccesary now the mites are bad the plants have only just come into flower so should be right with waiting periods.

I haven't gave the flour and water a go yet so might try that or the neem in the mean time.

I was honestly thinking of giving fly spray a crack. The plants have already had a bit of a beating don't think it would hurt them. I have heard off people doing it in grow tents but being outside I think they would just be back in a day or so anyways so probably wouldn't be good for the plant in the long run if I had to do multiple times.

That's awful advice.

You can get rid of mites, don't use fly spray.

in 6-8 weeks there’s no taste or anything, Neem oil ( in my experience) on the other hand will ruin your buds and taste like arse

Whatever you spray I would be re apply up to 3 times within a 2 week period to ensure you are killing of the future generations, also switching up sprays in that 2 week period is also recommended

Does the species of spider mite affect treatment is anyone able to identify them im assuming red spider mite or are they all basically treated the same when using homemade sprays?
