How does this product work?
This product is an excellent eliminator of thrip in all its forms.
Pests and diseases can and will cause issues that can negatively affect your plants and their health. Any condition may be genetic or bacterial, viral or fungal and in development. But you will likely only see fungal diseases as they are most prolific with hydroponic methods.
Always keep the floor area clean and all algal material off the surfaces of your growing media, as algae can become a good breeding ground for unwanted pests. Regular inspections and cleaning should keep such biomass at bay.
Hydroponic growers’ tools can sometimes carry microscopic pests, diseases and forms of fungi that could destroy your crop, so it’s necessary to be vigilant. Undertake regular sanitary precautions.
A separate collection of tools is easy to keep clean by disinfecting these after each use by simply soaking in water or washing them. This action also applies when you take cuttings. You should always ensure that you have cleaned your scalpel and cutting board; otherwise, you risk impacting their chance for their best possible start in life.
How do I use this product?
This Thrip insecticide from Guard ‘n’ Aid needs to be used during your plants’ dark cycle because it works far better and tends not to cause electrical hazards when the lights are off.
Mix the product with 15ml per litre of water, taking care not to exceed 20ml per litre, in a suitable sprayer or spray gun. Shake it well until it’s thoroughly mixed, and ensure that you use it within 6 hours of mixing it.
Thrips tend to be very active, so ensure all surfaces are wetted and avoid direct contact with open flowers. You should also ensure that you get good spraying coverage of any sites where the Thrip appears, as well as potentially problematic areas, including the undersides of the leaves. Repeat this treatment after 14 days to maintain control.
