Personally, i would give my ladies 2 or even 3 treatments to clear a pest issue (FWIW I have found spider mites MUCH more persistant than thrips) using a couple of different treatments. You are in flower, but still early, so not real "buds" to rot... what i would say is that 0.5ml/ltr harkers seems a good guide, but some have used 1ml with no issues... BUT i havent found that to be true of SBPI, where the reverse is more applicable... i used it at 10ml/ltr as directed on the bottle...my mums and cuts took utmost exception to it:
I have also since heard of plants in flower, revegging....
However, it IS effective, so IME, something under half strength of SBPI 4 or 5ml/ltr could be useful. (e2a : i think i will use it at about 1ml/ltr as a wetting agent)
I have lately used Neem Oil again and found that to be very effective also.
Along with sharp sand/pebbles on top of pot.
To answer your Q, No i wouldnt think a spray of clean water is required.

You need to break the life cycle of bugs, some will be adults, some just eggs....some treatments work better on bugs at different stages. So you want to spread your applications out one every 3 days or so would be best so you have a better chance of the treatment getting to work on all of the emerging beasties!
Be sure to give a thorough spray, under the leaves in particular. I use a pressure sprayer with a wand (below), much better than the pump type.
Read through Felix's post HERE, lots of good info therein.
