The link did not work for me, but got there eventually. Don't have a mite problem, but was curious about what happens to the predatory mites after they have done their job.. Are you smoking dead bugs as chances are you are not going to have pollen to keep them alive...just curious?

My best guess is indeed they die and prolly some are left in the weed....

It s not like say a zucchini or any veg u wash / rinse with fresh water....


But on the other hand ....

Our 8 legged and so small mostly inivisible ´´friends'´ are ubiquitous...
Ok not really like algae and spores which are airborne but still...
( bed mites... Carpet / dust mites.... I guess i miss some ......)

Imo u cannot really expect it to be sterile...

But your point is definitely valid and Worth looking into...

I am allergic to bed and dust mites...
In fact , us allergic are,huh, allergic...
to their feces .....
I know right...!!!!!

So even burnt to a crisp be it in a bowl or à doobie, what s left , if any', from those allergens....?

On the other hand i Ain t Been testéd for spider mites allergy...
I don t even know such test even exists...
As for their predators i guess not as well....


So there you are...

Personnaly i prefer to smoke some dead arachnids or and their predators than Tiny amounts of azamax or avid


I finally have to say that i Peek at my weed to check for trichs etc

And have never seen dead predators...
But have seen weed with bugs in it... Just not beneficials, always pests...


Cheers
