    I just spotted a different kind of bug in the grow room today. I've been searching online and can't find any pics or any info on what it might be. They are very visible. I think they are light green. I thought it was a tiny grasshopper, but noticed it had wings. I saw about five on one plant towards the top leaves, and lots of leaves have holes and bits off the side missing, so I know they are feasting on the leaves right now. Any idea what this could be?

    I think they are leaf hoppers. I found some pictures of them and googled more into them and I think that's what they are.
    I had gone back in there with a camera and couldn't find any so I don't have any pictures I have taken yet. and it's not thrips,although I do have them As well.

    I'm going to try using spinosad first since I Lready have it. Another site recommend I hire 18 years old chickies to remove by hand and enjoy the show. seems like an ok idea.
    Anyway now that I know what they are, hopefully they will be easy to get rid of.

    I spray part of my yard with this

    Then pick them off the plants. Some people spray this stuff on the plants, not me. Definitely dont use it on flowering plants...

    I've only use spinosad once for thrips and it worked really well. In the little research I've done, I've seen that Sevin stuff mentioned quit a bit, so it's going on the list. Thanks!
