How likely are you to get pests?
It is not a question of “will you have pests?” – it is just a matter of when, what type, and how much damage they will cause.
With our integrated pest management (IPM) services, we believe prevention is better than curative action. But whatever your situation, contact us for a confidential discussion. We can help you.

What are the top Cannabis pests?
Two-Spotted Spider Mite
Nymphs, adult males, and reproductive adult females are oval and generally yellow or greenish in color and have one or more dark spots on each side of their bodies. Two-spotted spider mite eggs are about 0.14 mm in diameter and are usually laid on the undersides of leaves. They are spherical, clear, and colorless when laid but become pearly white as hatch approaches.
Two-spotted mites suck cell contents from leaves, initially stippling leaves with a fine pale green mottling. As feeding continues, the stippling increases and leaves turn yellow with bronzed or brown areas. Undersides of infected leaves may have many cast exoskeletons of mites, and the webbing on flowers and foliage is a sign of a serious infestation. Yield and quality are severely affected when large mite populations are allowed to proliferate unchecked.
