I have no personal experience with the product, but that looks like a good one - but be aware that the humic acid and "seaweed" probably don't contribute as much as they would like you to think.

Treat them now. Spray and media drench. Any delay will allow the population to explode, making them harder to eradicate.

Such products are designed to make money, not to be by better for plants.

They add nothing, but probably are not harmful.

Depends upon the concentration. Feeding every two weeks, I'd recommend 200-250 ppm N. For Rain Mix @ 11.8% N, that would be somewhere in the range of 1.5-1.75 ml/L
