How To Keep Bugs Away From Cannabis Plants



Keeping Bugs Away from Cannabis Plants


Cannabis plants are a target for a wide range of pests, including aphids, spider mites, and whiteflies, which can damage the plant's leaves, stems, and buds. To protect your cannabis crop, it's important to implement an effective pest management strategy. One solution to consider is using Plant Bodyguard, a natural pesticide made from a combination of essential oils and other natural ingredients.


Plant Bodyguard works by creating a barrier around the plant that repels pests and prevents them from attacking the plant. The natural ingredients in Plant Bodyguard, such as thyme oil and peppermint oil, are known to have insecticidal properties (Koul, 2018). These essential oils disrupt the pests' nervous systems and make it difficult for them to locate and feed on the plant (Shirley, 2019).




To keep bugs away from cannabis plants with Plant Bodyguard, 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 once every 2-3 days for treatment, or weekly maintain the protective barrier.

It is important to note that Plant Bodyguard is safe to use on cannabis plants at any stage of growth on edible/washed crops. For smoke crops, we do not recmmend use the last 2-3 weeks before harvest. It is always a good idea to test the lowest dose 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 keeping bugs away from 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.
