Being in flower I don’t want to spray much , so will start with just plain old h20 to hopefully get what’s on the plants off.


If you think I should just get ladybugs and spray the plants down with water a ton hit the like button or drop a comment.




Went ahead and ordered a Few products off amazon and Will report back with what’s I end up doing for treatment .
