Cut out the infected areas!!! Do not give that shit any chance to spread. I waited once. 3 Days later, my entire cola was gone. CUT IT OUT.

Oh wow, that's .. interesting.

This is gonna require some diligence. Is the crop small enough to pick them off by hand? If so, I'd pick them off and destroy any webbing and egg sacs you see and then attempt to limit access to the area by spraying insect glue or organic pesticide, etc. around the perimiter, being careful not to get it on the plants.

Garlic spray will work great (crushed garlic in water) but you'll have to flush your buds before you pick, or come up with a new name like Garlic Kush :smile:

Check out these methods, but be careful with BT or chemicals! http://www.howtogetridofstuff.com/pest-control/how-to-get-rid-of-caterpillars/

i couldn't really see any eggs, maybe it's the black stuff i thought was poo?
or the lighter brown stuff?

i tried picking as much as i could but also didn't want to be touching the buds too much... will they keep munching on my green if i just hang it to dry?

and, do you think the white spots are really mildew? will it keep spreading post harvest?

i wanted to cure the buds but now i'm thinking it would be safer to just dry them completely>

fuck :crankey:

I don't see any mold or mildew, you're looking ok. What white spots are you referring to?

I assumed they were outdoors. If you're about to harvest, certainly remove the caterpillars and leave them outside. Caterpillars are little munching machines, that's all they do. I'd carefully pick through each plant to remove caterpillars, webbing, and obvious eggs or feces, and then I'd spray the plants off gently with a hose and let them dry before harvesting.

Actually your buds look very nice, excellent job! The caterpillars like them too. As you can see, they're fellow stoners, so try not to treat them too harshly. :smile:

Hi Simisu, great to see you it's zoro ...zozo :wink: ...

they look a bit big so I don't think there is more ages but can't be sure. most of the time these caterpillars came with Pigam do you have other plants around ?
I think that first you need to take them out by hand this is the only way right now and cover the plant with white screen that is for plants that you put if you don't want bird to eat you fruit.

mmmm ... I will look for  a link

peace
zoro

I've been told that the wisdom is to give it the cut when the trichomes have turned about halfway red on the top of the cola. I'd say by now it's ready :smile: The caterpillars thought so. Enjoy!
