I watched many videos on it was still was wondering if it affected the taste till I found macky had made a book on it lol as good as very detailed bud πŸ‘

really appreciate your work.

one thing still bothers me does the act kill eggs or just wash them Β off, reason I ask is if it only washes them of I could miss a mite egg hang it upto dry & in 21 days have mites running around where as if it kills them i’d be more confident of just using the Baking soda and lemon juice and not including peroxide which I would like to avoid

Eggs are going to be laid in the leaves mate, not ont he buds. So as long as you trim the plants to remove the leaves, then wash the buds, you shouldn't have any problemsΒ

Spider mites suck the juices out of your plants for food. When the buds are dry there’s nothing to suck out so if anything is left on the buds and is successful in hatching, they would most likely die rapidly without a food source and not reproduce.

@mix , I use lemon juice / baking soda method and Rinse off with two buckets. Because I grow outdoors and once you see what comes off you’ll probably always do it. I haven’t noticed a difference in flavor but its been awhile sense I haven’t washed buds.
