Hi there I’m new to the group . But I have been growing for 5 years on my own . The last 3 weeks have been wet and humid where I live . Was needing some good ideas to stop spider mites that won’t completely turn my buds toxic and harsh . Have a nice little garden scattered out through the country side so pest are a problem due to having to hide the grow in thickets . Heard mixed opinions about using neem oil during flowering . I’ve heard as long as you do the 3 bucket wash at the end ya totally fine . Please give me your ideas and experiences . 25 years old and just wanting to learn

Welcome to Percy’s mate. I’m not a fan of neem oil on buds. For one thing it’s going to change the flavor of the buds and I hate the idea of smoking that. One thing I have heard people using in flower is “The Amazing Dr Zymes Eliminator”. It’s a food grade organic citric acid that melts the insect shells but is safe up to and including the day of harvest. It’s a contact kill thing only and has no residual effects.

@monkeydo thank you . I had been combating it with pwrpermin and cinnamon spray but not much luck . I believe I’ll give this spray a a try . What’s your opinion on bud washing right at harvest ? Since I’m having to spray stuff during flower I’m obsessing an on weather to wash or not at harvest?

First I’ll say I’m not an outdoor grower, legal issues 😉. I know outdoor growers like @colacody swear by bud washing and have done real good research into how to do it properly so as not to harm the harvest but produce clean buds. He’s tagged in now and he can explain his process way better than I can when he gets the notification. It’s a gentle process if you don’t want to damage the trichomes. Other outdoor growers might also have some information on that. We have several growers in Canada that run outdoor crops every summer.

Check this guide for bud washing mate: https://percysgrowroom.com/washing-buds-after-harvest/

You dont want to spray any pesticides on the flowers if you can help it, but try giving the plant a good wash with the hose, and even try vaccuming off some of the spider mites.

Will.update later, at work, but I use a peroxide based spray and then wash with the one Macky suggested for bud washing, I have only ever used peroxide for powdery mildew tho, been lucky with the bug issue so far 🤞

Let it groooowwww...let it GROOOOWWW!!!

@belk-buds I've also used that method ( the one Macky mentioned) and the trick is to be GENTLE and don't try to strangle them and shake them to death, and don't TOUCH THE SIDES lol but if your growing outdoors it's a must in my opinion, and no it won't wash the trichomes off because the rain doesn't right? Their made to withstand mother nature and they grow with water, hence the incredible stickiness of the resin. You get a much fresher and more "clean" taste compared with the harshness of dirty outdoor, we have all smoked some "bush weed". Ensure the buds dry in front of a fan good so they aren't wet and you'll avoid the chance of bud rot. Again I am not entirely sure about the bugs but some other options have been mentioned but hell yeah for bud washing outdoors, tried tested and true. Hopefully this helps and you get a good harvest, the great outdoors can be quite a bitch man, welcome to Percy's tho! 🙂
