If you have spider mites and they are not going away this stuff works, kills adults and eggs. Shipping was rocket fast, the price was the best on the internet.

absolutely the best miticide avaliable
By Wit in eastern, maine on December 23, 2014
I have tried NPK Mighty wash, Einstein oil, Avid and about every product out their with little to no results. I finally bought Forbid 4F and with one heavy application the might were gone after 3 days and did not reappear. Most products want you to soak or spray under leaves and forbid you only need to spray the tops which in my case growing scrog is very hard to get at the undersides of leaves. I spray once at the start of veg cycle and once at the start of bloom and nnever have mite issues. I even brought 2 might infested plants into room the day I treated my crop and the mites I brought in also died off. I would recommend this to everyone but please make sure you wear gloves and a respirator when applying and don't use to close to harvest......A+ product and mites won't built resistance to it

Mites are tricky but the Forbid kicks their butt! Also, it is an effective ovacide so one application eliminated my infestation.

I have tried so many products with very little luck. Then I tried Forbid 4F. My mites are gone! 24 hours after spraying I saw a little bit of movement, after 48 there was none . The eggs were also dried up and nothing hatched.
Forbid is for when all your chips are on the table
By Croppin in Humboldt ca on September 2, 2015
Don't fumble around with other miticides if you're money's on the line, just pay the 200 bucks, soak 'em and sleep tight knowing all mites+ their eggs will be dead in no time.

August 26, 2013Scott from Jacksonville Fl asked:
QHow much Forbid 4F do I add to a gallon of water for application?
My book on my bottle of Forbid got wet & unreadable. I just want to make sure I don't burn my garden, thanks.
AThe label states to use 2-6 Ml into 5 gallons of water. So you would approx. 1.2 ML into one gallon water.
August 17, 2013Ed from Winnipeg, Mb asked:
QApplication rate of Forbid 4F
Can you tell me what the application rate would be? I have a 30 gallon spray tank and for spot use, a 2 gal. sprayer. The 30 gallon sprayer with 25 ft. hose I use for yard duty on over 100 trees and shrubs.

QWhat is the period before re-entry if I use Forbid 4F Ornamental Insecticide Miticide in my garden room?
