Cannabis and Biological Control

The production of Cannabis has sky rocketed in Canada ever since it was legalized in 2018. This includes the use of biological pest controls, an alternative and environmentally friendly option compared to treating with pesticides. These bio-controls will search your crop consuming the unwanted pest you have in your facility. The main cannabis pests to look out for are spider mites, thrips, aphids, fungus gnats, and mealybugs. Some other pests that may appear are whiteflies, broad mites and hemp russet mites, however if you treat your crop preventatively these pests will unlikely cause a problem. Most bio-controls are pest specific or have a preferred pest preference. Please see protocol below to know what product to use on each pest.
