Biocontrols For Your Cannabis Crop

The most common pests that affect cannabis crops are mites; but thrips, aphids, and whitefly can also be problematic. The use of BCA’s is very successful when used right from the start. BCA’s are excellent in preventing pest populations from getting established when they are released early in the crop cycle, ideally during propagation.
