THRIPS PEST CONTROL

While thrips can be really tiny cannabis pests, they can still be spotted by the naked eye. Some may have wings and some may not. Thrips reproduce rapidly, especially in tight places. That is what makes them hard to get rid of when using pesticides. They suck the sap right out of your plant with their piercing mouths, which makes the leaves look like they turned white.

organic Cannabis THRIPS Control

While thrips can be really tiny cannabis pests, they can still be spotted by the naked eye. Some may have wings and some may not. Thrips reproduce rapidly, especially in tight places. That is what makes them hard to get rid of when using pesticides. They suck the sap right out of your plant with their piercing mouths, which makes the leaves look like they turned white.

You can tell when you have thrips by taking a look at your leaves – they will look as if chlorophyll has been ripped right off the plant. Plants that are damaged can’t be healed thus making it harder for them to absorb light.

If left untreated, thrips will kill cannabis plants. Damage also can be seen by the greenish-black specks of poop they leave on foliage. Moreover, there will be silver patches on the plant from scar tissue.

Depending on the severity of a thrips infestation, thrips damage might initially look like spider mite damage. Some time later the damage gets worse and you can confirm that it is indeed a thrips case when the greenness of leaves is replaced with portions of white patches.

Thrips also can cause viruses to the plants and any larvae infected will breed more infected pests! Adults have wings though they do not fly well but rather jump from leaf to leaf and from plant to plant. While they suck, the plants release honeydew which can contribute to another common problem in cannabis – molds. 

There are different kinds of thrips and some are more resistant to chemicals than others. Thrips can also carry plant pathogens in their mouths and transmit these to other plants, increasing their chances of getting infected. If your cannabis plants are affected during late flowering or close to harvest, make sure you use organic pest control as it is safest for both your plants and your health.  

Thrips Elimination and Control

One good way to repel thrips for those growing their cannabis outdoors is to use garlic. Garlic repels thrips and is a good way to keep them away from your plants. The color yellow also attracts thrips so you should never have anything in this color around your growth, except probably for yellow sticky traps to catch these bugs on marijuana plants. If you already have them, neem oil and beneficial insects like ladybugs can help get rid of thrips as well.

Emma Baker
Emma BakerGreat company! I was about to kill all my plants and shut down because of frustration with two-spotted spider mites and broad mites. So happy Ryan verified this through a Dino lite microscope at 220 x magnification. Extremely satisfied in his service, my mites died, no eggs spared.

Paul EvansAnt & Garden Pest Control deserves 10 stars saved me from bankruptcy. I had root aphids in my indoor garden there’s nobody that knows how to kill them and has posted it on the internet. Ryan has dealt with them before and knew exactly which olcc approved products to buy and how to prevent reinfestation. I just harvested my first pest free crop in years! I am now going with his maintenance sprays 1 time a week Ryan has all the best lab grade equipment and knowledge. Easier to let him focus on my pests my time can be spent growing bumper crops of exceptional quality. This harvest I yielded 50% more than normal and sold everything I grew for 30% more than last time. Not only are my pests gone but Ryan’s service made me money.

Michael WrightThe commercial-grade soil baggage compost I used for my plants has root aphids. I had to reach out to Ryan of Ant & Garden Pest Control for assistance. The last three months have been quite pleasing as the destructive aphids were gone. Ryan was reliable, providing a constant level of quality with strong results. You can’t beat the peace of mind he offers. I had my first harvest smoothly with his maintenance spraying. We yielded over 2 grams a watt, nearly double our personal best.
