Has anybody used the chemical based smoke bombs to execute pests?  specifically spider mites?? Obviously I’ll make sure tent is completely empty but I’m literally at breaking point as can’t seem to get shot of the little shits.

Hey mate, I've only used it in a greenhouse as a last ditch, nuclear option but sometimes the only solution is a chemical one. Might be worth checking the rest of the environment your tent is in, especially if you've deep cleaned it before and they still come back - the buggers might be hiding somewhere else and go to the tent for an all day buffet!

Might also be worth a look adding stuff like neem cake and frass to your medium to kick the plant's own immune system into overdrive and make them less susceptible.

Hope this helps

@aitch thanks mate much appreciated I’m literally losing the plot with them I’m 5 wks into flower and there’s literally hundreds!!! I’ve used nearly a whole bottle of that SMC concentrate over last month or so but no joy hence why the nuclear approach might be my next move. Just hoping I can make it to harvest and not have the lot die 🤞🏽🤷🏽‍♂️😩

@cth1980 I’m not keen on using smoke bombs inside so consider a safer option.

Zombie Nation swears by these. Hang one in your tent, with or without plants, and it pretty much kills ALL bugs. He has successfully used them on mites and thrips. Probably should reinforce ALL bugs both good and bad so don’t use this with predator mites.
