How To Get Rid Of Bugs On Cannabis



Getting Rid of Bugs on Cannabis


Cannabis plants are susceptible to a wide range of pests, including aphids, spider mites, and whiteflies, which can damage the plant's leaves, stems, and buds. If left untreated, these pests can reduce the yield and quality of the cannabis crop. However, there are effective natural solutions to this problem, one of which is Plant Bodyguard.


Plant Bodyguard is a natural pesticide made from a combination of essential oils and other natural ingredients. It is effective against a wide range of pests and has been shown to be just as effective as synthetic pesticides (Shirley, 2019). The natural ingredients in Plant Bodyguard work by disrupting the pest's nervous system and repelling them from the plants (Koul, 2018).




To use Plant Bodyguard to get rid of bugs on cannabis plants, follow these steps:

  1. Mix 1/4floz+ of Plant Bodyguard per gallon of water as directed

  2. Use a spray bottle to apply the solution to the tops and undersides of the cannabis leaves, stems, and buds.

  3. Repeat the application every 2-3 days until bugs dead, then once a week for maintenance

It is important to note that Plant Bodyguard is safe to use on cannabis plants at any stage of growth, however if a crop is being smoked we don't recommend use the last 2-3 weeks. If you are spraying on edible crops or are bud washing, it is good up until harvest. However, it is always a good idea to test the solution on a small area of the plant first to make sure it does not cause any damage (Koul, 2018).


In conclusion, Plant Bodyguard is an effective and safe solution to getting rid of bugs on cannabis plants. By using this natural pesticide, farmers and gardeners can reduce the use of synthetic pesticides, minimize the risk of pest resistance, and protect the environment and human health.
