Watch out for these fuckers. I'm in for the battle of my life right now.
Had them in veg and treated with Bayer Citrus & Vegetable with Imid, and I thought I had the problem contained. Plants recovered quickly from their phantom deficiencies and looked healthy as could be. Went on vacation, got back 4 days later, and plants still looked healthy. Flipped into flower, and now I'm at Day 8 and my plants went from super healthy as could be to looking faded, like they are being flushed. I noticed a few of the nymph phase aphids. Only a few visible in my tray after flooding, but where there are a few, there are hundreds more hiding. I don't see any mature beetle like aphids, or no winged flyers or translucent red and brown ones like last time, just the immature ones. But it is clear they are still causing damage. Not sure I'm gonna make it another 8 weeks
These things are no joke. I don't know how they got spread so quickly to AZ, but there doesn't seem to be a 100% cure all for these things.
Yah those are the absolute worst man, good luck
That sucks. Good luck man. I'm battling bud worms that seem
to love BT.
Bayer is good at killing jews, not sure about root aphids though lol In all seriousness Kal el from this forum constantly touts Forbid by Bayer, maybe that would work for you
I have started to see a whitefly or two in my flower room - time to get some sticky tape.
research spinosad... it's something I haven't gotten around to trying yet (haven't had a bug for a minute) but is supposed to be an organic control that doesn't stick around with the plant for long. Hope you figure it out ; ;
Forbid will work on white flies.
For Root Aphids I recommend using Spectracide at 7 ml per gallon & drenching while the plant container is in a rubbermaid tub so they can't escape while you treat each container.Three treatments a week apart took care of my Root Aphid problem. Sticky traps to catch any fliers & diatomaceous earth spread around the entire surface/floor area your plants are kept to catch any wanderers is your recipe for success.
An expert is someone that learns more and more about less and less, and eventually knows everything about nothing.
drench the roots in mighty wash
then apply MET 52. its a biofungus that kills aphids in soil. but it takes about 2 weeks to innoculate soil and you have to spread the grains around as much as possible. best to pre-mix it into the soil before transplanting. search around this site and others like thcfamer and you will find loads of info. good luck.
you may want to take clones, start clean and throw out all existing soil. trust me its not with batteling during flowering. expect 10-25% yeilds.
or go chemy. i prefer to not smoke systemic chemicals in my flowers.

I have those little bastards too about 5 weeks in bloom. I was able to knock them back a little with SNS 203 and have some nematodes showing up today to help keep them at bay. Hopefully I can last a few more weeks. There is really not too much visible damage so maybe I caught them in time.
Kal, what kind of spectracide do you use?. I saw they have like ten different kinds at Lowes.
Do you think your nematodes will survive after you drenched the pots with SNS??
