    So I am on my first grow (mainly soil with a couple hempys) currently flowing Sour D and Headband. Anyways I was late in flower and noticed a minor thrip problem (got a live christmas tree, thinking it may have came from that). anyways I treated with Neem, and about a week later lady bugs.. Anyways the lady bugs really worked great! those things are vicious, they were all over my buds and leaves eating everything they can.. a week later no new signs of thirps and I still have a handfull of lady bugs that hung around.. anyways I pulled a leaf off and found this underneath. Using a USB scope I snapped a couple pics. I am thinking its lady bug shit, and maybe lady bug eggs, as I am 99% certain to have eliminated the thrips.
    What do you guys think it is? the orange colored shit is really interesting.

    IDK what that is, but for how small ladybugs are, I don't think you'd be able to see ladybug shit.
    I just Googled "is ladybug fecal matter visible to the naked eye" and got zero.
    Unless you see problems developing in the areas where the orange stuff is, I wouldn't worry if it was me.

    I want to say I was at 100x zoom, so it wouldnt be to the naked eye. I wasnt worried about it at all, I introduced the lady bugs to take care of thrips. I just found the pics interesting and wanted to see what everyone thought it was.
