Can you name this predator? *CLOSEUP MACROS*
Here's some pics. I'm almost positive they were in the oil I used, but the soil was just being so good to my plants I had to use it. I'm finding one or two of these every day or every other day, since they were 3ish weeks veg. Just stared flower so I don't want any of them near buds!

Sorry, none of your macros are clear enough resolution to make an accurate ID it would just be guessing at this point.

Curious2 is right, the pictures are not big enough or detailed to positively ID the little critter but from what I can see, it sure looks like a fungus gnat. I know root aphids don't have that long of a body.

^ What should I do? Would neem oil work? When/where should I spray it? (All over before lights off?) OR just the soil at any time?
i think it is fungus gnat as well
That's what they look like to me. I don't really know what to do, if I should do anything at all? Just a little neem oil to stay safe?
fungus gnat for sure. get some sticky traps, cover the top of the medium in perlite. that should stop those little fuckers from breeding. they need a moist climate to reproduce. by covering the soil with perlite they will have nowhere to lay, innoculate, and hatch their eggs

bugsfeb.jpgHey this is a close up of ????? anyone know? Haven't seen much of anything flying around the tent, I have a fan going all day rustling up the plants, and at night just the exhaust fan. Growing in Perlite and Vermiculate. Any ideas/suggestions? THanks guys!
