I've looked on the internet to find a good product that is effective in getting rid of thrips. I'm getting a different product every post i look at. I've taken a look today and the problem is getting worse on my crop. I actually see about 5 on one leaf. What is the most effective way of getting rid of these little blighters which wont dent my wallet too much. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks. I'm up for the yellow strips. Need something immediate if poss.

Kind Regards

Go to Walmart or Canadian tire and buy some safer's sprey aka safer's soap or neem oil or you could make your own solution of 1 cup dish soap, 1/4 cup veg oil and 2 cups warm water shake it up put it in a spray bottle and wash them away but with this recipe you will need to clean off leafs with water after or they will burn.
 
good luck the best way is probably the store bought stuff to be safe
smoke or be smoked
cant always see through my cloud of smoke

Pyrethrum is safe, cheap and will kill most cannabis pests (with the exception of spidermites, which are hard to eradicate with any pesticide).

Thrips should be completely wiped out by a few applications of pyrethrum.
