Conserve Naturalyte for Thrips

thominindy(6)July 30, 2010

Hello All.

Okay, I give. HALF MEASURES DON"T WORK WITH THRIPS. With that said. I have dis budded my plants (so sad). After reading Irina's comment about Neem in the last Thrips thread I thought I would use something stronger, so I got some Conserve Naturalyte. I didn't realise that SC is what is usually discussed here. The folks at Reeds say to use the Naturalyte as it is much less expensive.

Would anyone know the proper dose rate for the Naturalyte? The dosage on the instructions is for outdoor use and I thought that might be too strong for Av's. It calls for 4 tblsp or 2 oz. per gallon of water.

Thanks. Have a great weekend.

Have no idea about Naturalite - but Conserve was so overused by farmers - thrips already developed resistance to it.

I was just trying to avoid using AVID. I use NEEM regularly and I know my plants love it, but I'm not sure that it will get rid of my Thrips. I will start an AVID treatment today.

I have read two different threads that say to treat Thrips with AVID three times one week apart. Getting rid of the Thrips in three weeks sounds too good to be true. Can this work in three treatments?

Thank You All

Yep. And do not forget to remove all your buds and blossoms before you start. The buds are the places where they could hide and survive.
