Marijuana pests are one of the main reasons we experience indoor grow room and outdoor marijuana disasters.
Many growers experience the heartbreak of seeing spider mite tents, sucking aphids, fungus gnats, whiteflies budworms, and many other meanies plaguing our beautiful cannabis plants.
And too many marijuana growers resort to Malathion, AVID or other poisons when their plants are under threat from little beasties.
Spraying chemical insecticides on or around marijuana plants creates toxic buds that harm anyone who ingests them.
Fortunately, there’s a better way to beat marijuana pests–use beneficial insects that are predators against the most common marijuana pests.
To get familiar with the many ways to use beneficial insects to protect your marijuana plants, check out “Good Bugs, Bad Bugs,” a fun and very practical guide to beneficial and harmful insects.
Not only will you be intrigued by the possibilities of using non-toxic methods to fight bad insects, you’ll get turned on to the idea that beneficial insects add a new layer of fun to your gardening.
It’s like having an aquarium, except instead of fish swimming in a tank, it’s colorful insects helping you protect your buds!
They have a solid reputation.
Contact beneficial insect companies and ask them about the benefits and application of beneficial insects to help you protect your plants.
One of the most useful beneficial insects is the Minute Pirate Bug (scientific name: Orius insidiosus).
Pirate bugs eat caterpillars, aphids, thrips, and mites.
Along with armoring your hydroponics marijuana plants using potassium silicate and implementing the strictest possible vector controls, consider using beneficial insects as a safe and relatively effective way of battling marijuana pests.
