John from Trifecta Reveals The Truth About Russet Mites
Russet mite infestations have dramatically increased for cannabis growers all across the nation.
Here are some solutions to help you defeat russet mites without resorting to using toxic chemicals on your plants.
First off…Anyone who tells you that they have a safe FIFRA 25B exempt product that can kill russet mites on contact…you should be very wary of… because these little bastards are VERY difficult to contain and stop without using toxic chemicals.
Using Trifecta Crop Control, what we have been able to do with russet mites is KEEP THEM OFF PLANTS and in many cases CURE AN INFESTATION with proper diligence in stopping the lifecycle of these little devils.
The first thing to know about defeating russet mites is that PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE is KEY TO SUCCESS.
Paying close attention to your plants, avoiding cross-contamination and spraying preventatively once or twice a week with a natural product like Trifecta Crop Control to keep russet mites OFF your plants and is the best way to defend your plants.
Should you find yourself with an outbreak of russet mites, there is hope but the sooner you ACT, the better chance you have of saving your crops!
Russet mites always start from the bottom of the plant and work their way up.
With a russet mite infestation sometimes growers start ripping off the lower level limbs and leaves taking away the infested area before it makes it way to the higher parts of the plant. This requires you to be watching your plants closely every day.
Cleaning the plants of a russet mite infestation without using toxic chemicals can take about 2 and a 1/2 weeks using Trifecta Crop Control
Using Trifecta to stop an infestation, you need to spray daily for 2-3 weeks to work through whatever is already colonized on the plant.
To beat a russet mites infestation it requires ending the ENTIRE lifecycle of the colony. This requires killing the eggs, not just the living mites on the plants.
It is important to remember that a natural solution like Trifecta is not killing them through suffocation like in a kill on contact situation. We are killing cross-contamination, stopping the lifecycle and keeping the future mites from coming onto the plant.
We do not want to be misleading, stopping a russet mite infestation without using toxic chemicals is not a walk in the park… but with diligence and Trifecta Crop Control, there is hope in winning against these devils.
The keys to winning the battle against russet mites are:
#1. Maintain healthy plant and check your plants daily for signs (russet mites start at the bottom of the plant)
#2. Use a natural preventative maintenance product to keep russet mites off like Trifecta Crop Control (spray once a week starting NOW)
#3. Avoid cross-contamination, change clothes, keep new people away from your plants, keep products coming from stores away from plants, keep it CLEAN
#4. With an infestation, you must kill the lifecycle, it will take some time, there is no quick fix, the sooner you catch it the less damage russet mites cause
#5. Worse case scenario remove and destroy the infested plants to avoid a total annihilation of your harvest and remember PREVENTION is the KEY to success!
Together we can isolate the russet mite infestations and keep cross-contamination to a minimum as a community.
