I have heard from multiple growers who experienced the same outcome. Aphids are on the run in a matter of hours!
My distributor in Colorado approached a dispensary… asked them if they had bugs? He was taken to a room and showed many cannabis clones that were infested with “super bug” aphids. (They had become chemical resistant for the most part.) My distributor told the grower that he could get rid of his aphids in a matter of hours. The grower did not believe that this was possible… and allowed my distributor to set up the lights… because the grower wanted to show up the distributor! Within three hours… the grower saw that the aphids were on the run!
Wanted to share a non-cannabis experience… a greenhouse grower’s (Tuinier Bros.) own words about what he experienced while growing flowers in hanging baskets.
Most of our hanging baskets were infected with aphids.
I situated two of our hanging baskets in the middle of two insect deterrent lights. Within an hour or so I noticed that some of the aphids were leaving the plants in the baskets. Within two days all the plants in the baskets illuminated by the insect deterrent lights were clean of the aphids. When I turned off the lights, the aphids returned. They once again vacated the area when I turned the lights back on.
I kept the lights on for five more days, but no aphids returned.
I spread out the lights and added some more uninfected baskets. Some of the baskets that were in the center of the lights were not being illuminated by the lights. In a sense, I had constructed a protective perimeter around the baskets. None of the aphids returned.
I tried spreading the lights out even further and adding more baskets, but the perimeter was no longer intact, and the aphids returned to the plants that were not illuminated by the lights. My thought is if I had enough lights to make a solid perimeter… all the illuminated baskets, as well as the baskets not illuminated, will not experience returning aphids.
