According to Wikipedia (  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Springtail  ), Springtails (there are many species) are evolved from arthropods.  Scientists have only recently stopped considering them as insects.

 

1.  So, if you are considering using a pesticide, it might be better to use an arachnicide instead of an insecticide.

 

2.  (from Wikipedia:)  "Springtails commonly consume fungal hyphae and spores, but also have been found to consume plant material and pollen, animal remains, colloidal materials, minerals and bacteria. ....Springtails have internal mouth parts."  So, if you could treat the top of your soil with a fungicide, you might deprive them of their food.  Because a fungicide might also harm your mychorrhizae, I would suggest only a topical spray treatment of the soil, but a thorough spraying and cleaning of the moist or wet parts of your tent.

 

3.  You could also try a method that works well against roaches.  After the cleaning of your tent, sprinkle about a little powdered Boron.  The Boron gets on their legs and hairs and on their food.  When roaches clean themselves or eat the Boron, it doesn't kill them right away, instead, it enters their digestive tract and destroys their ability to digest their food.  They die, and when their body is eaten by the next roach, that individual suffers a similar fate.  The roach transports the poison to the other roaches.  This makes Boron so effective.  I would expect that Boron might also be effective against Springtails.

 

Here is additional information about Springtails from Orkin Pest Control company.  https://www.orkin.com/other/springtails/

 

Of particular interest is their method of reproduction, and the fact that they reproduce in large numbers, hence large infestations if not treated.

I spotted what I think are springtails floating on in my Run-Off water butt.  They've make a raft out of themselves, like ants!

Thanks @Cannabissapean you put me in the right path cedar oil I think is going to be the best bet if not boron powder

@Cannabissapean it’s an ingredients in some pesticides like go gnats it kills most pesticides fungus gnats springtails among others it doesn’t poison them it makes them dry up and die or blocks the breathing receptors ending up suffocating them! I have heard you can use to gnats as a soul drench which is made by earth juice can’t grit where I am unless. Ship from us. I just need to find a way to make cedar safe for soil hopefully just a simple case of diluting it! With cedarwood one l it needs to be purified so aromatherapy oil won’t do!

I’ve ordered a bottle of cedarwood essential oil and witch hazel of which I’m going to mix in water and spray a lower leaf see if it effects the plant if it doesn’t I’ll try a root drench on one plant take the risk

End of week 5 flower and finally all springtails have gone and buds have started swelling! 1 pink lemonaid looks finished by all brown hairs but it shouldn’t be they are 8-9 week flowering. I’m giving it just water seeing if I can keep her in there for another 2 weeks. Other pink lemonaid suffered a lockout and never recovered coz I didn’t pick up on it! Had water got a week and now is starting to flourish! Lemon jones well is doing the best fat heads stinking all that you want is starting to show small calmag def so I’ve put it back in it’s feeding schedule. The 2 cuttings are at week 3 and are being top dressed with guano and palm tree ash every 2 weeks and waters with molasses and biosys microbe tea 1 feed every other week.

Been a while be n a bit busy to get writing just a quick stop off it’s been a challenge of a grow here but I have kept with it and the end is near! I’ve tackled severe root rot springtails infestation of which is under control to a healthy level where they are helping things are going smoother coz of it! My bathroom fan packed up so I don’t honk this is where a lot of my problems have come from I also had spider mites last week of which I got a load of predator mites and got a bottle of cx horticulture spotless which is organic and you can use right up to harvest (basically essential oils of which I could have made myself but got it for ease! I do have another problem coz of bathroom fan Being broken humidity is sky high lights on 40% lights off was at 90%😱 but now at 60% keeping a close eye on it hopefully the sparky will be round to fix it soon! Chopped one pink lemonaid down Friday other one and lemon jones hopefully down in 2 weeks and my 2 cuttings which are in soil fed bat guano palm tree ash and mollases with the occasional biosys tea ice and candy have 5-6 weeks to go but are doing well. Sorry for some pics sideways not holding phone proper way (yes I know I shouldn’t use mobile device)

Some lovely autumn colours there @mungbean79. Looks like a nice harvest after all after some very difficult times for you (gnat flies, mites, humidity fan, etc etc) :)

 

My harvest was 19th November.  I dried for 3 days then took an approximate oz off, trimmed, and put in jars with 62% Boveda sachets like you. Next day, one more oz off & trimmed, etc etc.  On 25th realized all was too dry so trimmed and jarred the rest that day.  I burped the jars every other day for a week, then put them in outside storage for a week (~5c); brought inside & burped for 2 hours then back into outside storage again. Is this similar to how your cure/burp/etc?

In all honesty @ShaggyGrower I very rarely cure my bud coz I can’t get a system to keep a constant grow I do a grow start to finish them put everything away for a month then start again! I have always loosely filled my jars so not to compact it but when I got this c vault container they recconwnd to stuff the pot place the boveda pack in the lid and push down to displace oxygen, open daily for the first 5 days then add extra boveda if needed then leave it! They say between day 6-9 is where the packs will even out to 62% this has been a very challenging grow for me but I’m glad I didn’t give up on them

All taken down just left with my cuttings of candy and ice to finish looking like this weekend for them all they have been fed is bat guano potash and occasional biosys tea and top dressed with ecothrive charge mollases have been fed just water for the last 3 weeks not going to get much off them as they had a short veg and I didn’t follow a feeding schedule was very lazy with them. The candy smells unbelievably sweet and fizzy the ice doesn’t smell much but has a serious layer of crystals on her reckon I’ll get about 25g of the ice and about 80g off candy. 

 

Wights of my pink lemonaid dry 1st down was the smallest but had a lovely smell to her and tasted divine now shit away for as long as.  An not touch her I got just over 60g. 2nd pink lemonaid didn’t have a sweet smell but had a peppery spicy smell which came out in flavour and in the room once smoked I got 108g. The lemon jones didn’t have no smell and no real flavour to her but was a pleasant smoke a lovely buzz that lasts a long time was easy to trim no need for scissors leaves just pulled off with ease very crystally and nice fat buds I got 144g. They have been in c vault containers 1st 5 days I burped the jars daily then left them shit opening at the end of week humidity seems to have settled at 62% they dreid way too quickly (8 days) but have nice moisture back in them aiming to leave them another 6 weeks before diving in!

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
