Hi @Shortycc! Soap is used to make your mixture glue to your plant but it is not the main repulsive. You could try to add a few drops of neem oil, as well as crushed/mixed garlic, and some essential oils (such as peppermint, lavender, clove..). These should repel predators from eating your leaves and conqueering your plant, and neem oil can even sterilize them. Considering you're already in the flowering stage, I would not apply this solution by misting/spraying, but I would use a sponge and delicately apply onto & below the leaves, to prevent buds from being affected by your solution (and by too much humidity). Hope this will help, keep us updated and happy growing! :facepunch:

Spinosad will work also. Get tweezers and pluck them off if you can. Also neem oil os a great preventative that you can start applying after the spinosad or wash with soap and water.:pray::pray:
