Using poison on plants is not the smart way to control spider mites. Liquid Ladybug™ merely suffocates mites instead of poisoning them. Only a few organic oils are effective for spider mite control and most spider mite sprays try to employ these natural oils to no meaningful effect. Coating the plant in any oil can suffocate the plant by covering the Stoma openings that the leaf uses to breath. We have designed a formulation of oils to cause rapid evaporation using our innovative proprietary process. This makes Liquid Ladybug™ the only miticide to evaporate off the plant in 25 to 40 minutes, and that’s why these same oils in other products can’t evaporate and do leave residues.
Clever is better. Our scientists are trained in physics, chemistry, botany and physiology to integrate the requirements for safety not only for the plant, but for the person growing the plant. Liquid Ladybug™ cannot hurt you or your plants. We have raised the bar in this industry for your safety. Try Liquid Ladybug™ today, you’ll be glad you did!
Can I use Liquid Ladybug on plant cutting starts and seedlings?
Answer: Yes you can. It is best to let cuttings recover and begin to root but if you have mites on your cuttings the plant you cut from needs to be treated first.
Can I use Liquid Ladybug on plants in bloom?
Answer: Yes you can, our formula evaporates away and won’t hurt plant tissue but make sure the plants are 24” away from the lights.
Can I use Liquid Ladybug after treating my plants with a sulfur burner for powdery mildew?
Answer: Yes you can, because we designed a rapidly evaporating combination of natural organic oils. However, you might consider using the treatment the Brazilians and New Zealanders use; 10% milk solution. One part low fat or no fat milk to 9 parts water and spray on the plants. This turns the acidic surface of the leaf to alkaline and the mildew dies immediately. You can use to up to 20% solution (2 parts to 8 parts), but 30% will leave a milk fat that will foster snowy mildew. This milk solution remedy also feeds the plant enzymes, Magnesium and Calcium and your leaves like it better than chemical solutions.
Will Liquid Ladybug get rid of thrips and aphids?
Answer: Yes it does, and one thing we do see is a rapid elimination of fungus gnats because you can spray the surface of the growing medium. We never suggest a soil drench because it is so important to not affect the pH, oxygen exchange and nutrient mineral exchange in the root ball. We are introducing new products formulated specifically for larger pests, but Liquid Ladybug is designed specifically for the most ubiquitous pest – the mite.
I have used Liquid Ladybug according to the instructions and I still have mites; what’s happening?
Answer: Liquid Ladybug™ kills mites on contact so you just haven’t sprayed those mites yet. Once mites are on your plants’ leaves, mites and their eggs can fall off the plant into the growing medium. Our microscope video study of mite behavior has shown the growing medium is the major source of hidden mites that can re-infest the plant using the main stem after treatment. This is seen in situations where after treatment, a few days later there are silk webs at the tip top of the plant…the main stem is their highway. In this situation the Liquid Ladybug Mite Shield is the easiest solution to get this problem under control. By isolating the green parts of the plant from the grow medium you can then complete your grow and after you’ve harvested you can really clean out your grow room.
Can I use a fogger to apply Liquid Ladybug?
Answer: No, because you need to fully wet all plant surfaces and foggers don’t do that. We have found that pump sprayers or pressure sprayers do a better job of delivering an adequate film layer of Liquid Ladybug to assure complete coverage.
Can Liquid Ladybug get my cycled propagation infestation under control?
Answer: Yes. By fixing the starting point, the plants used for division and cuttings, mite free seedlings begin the removal of the overall infestation. Some users increase the dwell time (time it takes for Liquid Ladybug to evaporate) to lengthen the time the mites are exposed in heavy infestations using plastic covers and humidity domes. If you fix the plants you are propagating from, and use Liquid Ladybug Mite Shields on the main stems to prevent re-infestation, you can isolate the green parts and get them cleaned up. Then a weekly, bi-weekly or even monthly single application of Liquid Ladybug as a maintenance routine will prevent further outbreaks.
Will mites develop a resistance to Liquid Ladybug?
Answer: No, because Liquid Ladybug™ is designed to only suffocate mites not to poison them (like diluted neuro-toxic poisons currently available in some products). Because of this unique design there is no possibility of building up a resistance. Liquid Ladybug is like tying a plastic bag over the mites’ head, nothing can build up a resistance to suffocation.
