I have had a gay as insect in my garden forever. I am pretty sure they are Thrips. They are small, white in color. They crawl on my leaves, leave small white streaks, and mothers are smaller, b the lack in color and fly around. I have been spraying Einstein Neem Oil on them, used poisons, and even Nematodes!!! They will never completely go away. They are slowing the growth in my garden down!!! What about using regular spiders as a predator? They are all over my basement. The other day saw one crawling on my plant. Spider mites don't come from spiders, right? Anything wrong with this idea. I am seriously sick of these damn bugs! Any other ideas?
