Hi, my b52 closed and formed a Seal at nothing. Under lights, there is no sign of bugs. Should I Open it? Is it normal?

Ok, I will try. Now, almost 8 hours later, it has formed a complete Seal. It isn't grown in direct sun light for now, because it is being treated for spidermites. And should I cut off very heavily affected traps by spidermites? Like this one.

I would cut them off. What are you using to treat them? I treat mine with neem oil and it's working pretty well for now. I would still put them in the sun though, they will need the energy.
