Try Safer Soap… I use it with a combination of Neem oil and it works on pretty much everything. Few drops of Neem oil and a couple caps full of Safer Soap in a 32oz spray bottle. Sucks to have to spray your plants this far into flower but you do what you gotta do. Even though it’s all organic, I’d still do a nice flush spray once you see no more signs of bugs.

I think I’ve heard of people using this. Has anyone else?? I’ve already got it but I don’t want to experiment

I haven’t used it but I’ve seen it referenced in one of my older organic grow encyclopedias. A tablespoon to a quart of water is supposed to be good for light aphid (or anything with a soft body) infestations. I actually forgot all about this. I meant to make my own a little while back but never got around to it. Google it. Castile Soap is about as useful as vinegar.

In bloom i wouldnt use soap. You need to identify what you have. Biocontrols are highly recommended

Purecrop1 is a great option. Safe, non toxic, an all in one product and a bio stimulant.
