    What are they?

    They are very small yellow/white bugs, they look like rice.

    Need to do something now.

    are they smaller than rice? if so prolly spider mites, are they making webs? or are they flying around, also where on the plant are they located?

    LoganSmith Well-Known Member

    They are way smaller then rice, they are on the leaves and there is only a few so far. There is no webbing yet. I just saw them today and I killed about 10 or so with my finger nails, I looked in the flowering area which is right under the cloning/vegging area and didn't see any. I will have to look closer.

    I just got back from walmart and pick some stuff up. It says it will kill spider M. and the eggs.

    So I will update with pics and new info after I have done it.

    And no they don't look to be flying. They do run fast. sneaking litte fuckers

    sounds like it might be aphids from the colour, but this is a weird time of year for them, unless you are someplace warm, and they don't run very fast. Just get some lady bugs, again if you're someplace warm and they are in season. Lady bugs are will kill just about anything super fast. This past year I used 6 lady bugs from outside on a 6 foot house plant that was covered in at least 1000 aphids, they we're gone in 3 days. Pretty sweet.

    Those are them in the pic, not the big fly in the middle, but the little yellow ovals around it. They are destructive, you'll get little holes in they youngest foliage, they love the young stuff. If you have a few now, chances are there'll be hundreds in 3-7 days.

    with pics it would be very easy to identify the problem sad to put something on the plant that wont work

    Hey guys and gals I have put up pics in the same type of thread in the plant problems can you take a look.

    LoganSmith Well-Known Member

    Fuck it I will just put the pics up on this thread. :)

    I went to walmart and pick up some Garden safe fungicide 3 in 1 spray. I didn't want to take any chances of them fucking and making 10000000000000 of babbys. :fire::finger:

    Here are the pics.

    Ok, I sprayed them all and after a few hours I saw a few more so I killed them and will spay again in the morning. I only found 2 more.

    And my girlfriend says they are aphids. I killed one and took a look under my 100x scope they are uglyyyyyyyy.

    U said they run fast, only mites run fast, aphids barely move.

    LoganSmith Well-Known Member

    Ok so I just pm fdd and he said it sounds like thrips. I went to google and imaiges and sure enough thats what they are. They look just like that.

    Thanks all and thanks to Fdd

    I actually have found a few of the same bugs myself, killed them by hand and never saw them again though.
    Not sure if they are spider mites are not, the few I found never started webbing
