Tokecrazy, thank you for the reply.. I dont grow indoor.. It cost to much for the equipment for me to try it.. Ive been growing outdoors from the start.. about 4 years ago i was first hit by spider mites and each year after i have been hit worse than the year before,, this year i found them about april 15th and have not been able to get rid of them.. I have use just about everything i can find to get rid of them..outside of spraying the whole property with something i dont know what to do..
Hello GT,I will help you if I can. I had the dam mites for over a year. Holler back with what you have for a set up and all the Temps , humidity , and is the grow in the basement or? I think we can fix it. Peace

Avid works, but is toxic and if you are commercial in CO, will get you shut down. I don't know what it does to people, but it is banned here. news story said a bottle was found at a commercial grow and the place was shut down and plants taken out. The way the laws are it wouldn't surprise me to see all of the stuff that works well banned. I am all about prevention so spray the exterior foundation of my home in the spring and fall with a regular store bought broad spectrum pesticide, from a 1 gallon sprayer. Also have yellow sticky traps in the grow and crawling insect sticky traps on the floor. Gnatrol works well against those pesky bugs, which are here as "drain gnats", harmless but annoying as Hell. Diatomaceous earth helps as does sand on top of your soil pots.Keeping the little indoor garden super clean has worked for me thusfar, except for the one terrible day when someone gave me an infested plant, which shut down my grow for weeks while I spent many long hours cleaning. Outdoor grows amaze me when they make it to harvest without pests, some regions are so infested that it is impossible to grow there. http://www.domyownpe...ide-p-2330.html

I've used avid 2 times over many years out here, as I work on intently on prevention. I've always been able to hit it 3-4 wks before a harvest and I've never had an issue. I do, occasionally, pre-treat a room while it's between stages and that's really ensured no direct contact with the green and a completely unwelcome environment for anything to get a start. handle with care? absolutely. safe when properly used with careful precautions? absolutely.
That's the difference between taking care of things yourself and some spaced out, minimum wager, working the 9-5. just my opinion/experience. YMMV.
edit add: oh. crap. didn't realize this was the outdoor section. my bad. carry on.
