Hi all,

I'm on week 5 of flower and I've just found thrips. The flowers are pretty fat so I'm not wanting to spray anything on, I've just bought a hot shot strip to hang up but I'm concerned I'm going to lose my crop. 

Help!

@juffle Do you have some pics mate? How bad is it? 

The hot shots is good shit according to ZN and it will kill the thrips off pretty quick. You can always wash the buds after harvest too to get rid of dead bugs on the plants. Some pics would really help though mate so we know what we are dealing with

Finally got pics. I'm no expert but I think it's quite bad as it's throughout a 3x3 that's full.

The hot shot strip has arrived. Just wanted to double-check that the hot shots are safe to use in late flower? Today is the start of week 6 of flowering?

@juffle @ZN would know for sure as he uses them, but i'm pretty sure he uses them through the grow. You jus hang them in the grow room and it does the job.

Ohh i am in the same boat as you! I have been with the plants alot throughout the days killing anything that moves!! They have only managed to damage 1 or 2 leafs so far. Use wet cotton bud sticks to get off any of the small yellow/white worms you see under and on the leafs, sticky paper yellow or blue works really well for the adults and so satisfying seen them all stuck to it. I have never heard of the hot shot but im wishing you the best luck, no matter what they will all die off once you cut the plant anyway because the adults prefer to live in the soil anyway. 🌸🌸

@drea90 good thinking with the cotton buds, although with the tent pretty full it's hard to get to the back quarter of the tent. 

I'll get the hot shot in there tonight and report back.
