Enemies of Marijuana

When growing marijuana you have to take into consideration that you may have some enemies.  I’m not talking about the boys in blue either.  Although you have to worry about the police for now, animals can also be a problem.

If you don’t have a fence around your grow area, the deer or other large animals will like to frequently devour the young transplants.  Also burrowing animals like to bother your plants as well.  If this happens you may have to resort to gopher pellets to keep them away.

However, insects won’t usually bother your marijuana crop.  That includes locusts and grasshoppers as well.  Spiders occasionally nest in the branches.  Although they will not harm your plants, their webs may prove to be a nuisance for when you’re trimming and doing other maintenance.  Lucky for you toads will help keep your garden free of spiders, so you won’t have to use DDT on insects.  Also if you get mites don’t worry so much because you can use systemic insecticide, which you can find at Sears.  The poison will go into the plant kill the mites then leave so that it don’t harm the plant.

Other than animals and insects you have maintenance of the crop itself so that it don’t dry rot, etc…Weeds can be a constant problem.  So make sure you trim as much as you can, this way the nourishment isn’t sucked out of the crop.

These are some basic tips if you’re starting a garden of marijuana.  So take care of your plants and they will take care of you.
