    Ive noticed some small areas of leaf damage and found these tiny tiny white bugs about 1mm or less long and thin they jump too.

    Whhat are these things and where do they come from? I think it may be coming from me dog to my clothes then to the plants.

    Ive sprayed the whole crop with ppest off and will give another spray tommorrow.

    Any ideas. they arenot mites i cant see any legs but really need a magnifying glass to get a closer look

    Ive just come to that conclusion after searching they sound hard to get rid of.

    The leaf damage would definety suggest that, looking at pictures.

    Where would these things come from i had them before.

    they breed in the soil.. water... spray... then cover your potter with papper plates for a week... it will break the life cycle

    I got some macro pictures of the little fuckers. have a look are they thrips or somthing else. they seem to move similar to the way a maggot would.

    Notice the black dots on second picture.

    Get some "goGnats" by HydroOrganics. It's a non-poison pesticide that is exempt from Federal Regulation and is totally safe for plants that will be consumed by the grower. I had those bugs too, but the guy at my local Hydro shop turned me on to this product. I gave one application (mix it with water and mist your plants and saturate the surface of the soil) and it killed off the little bastards.
    If you can't find it locally I know you can get it from www.atlantishydroponics.com.

    Ive used this http://www.hydroponics-hydroponics.com/pd-pest-off.cfm.

    Absolutely soaked the plants covered up the soil with paper plates and then gave another soaking two days later. That was about a week ago and fingers crossed havent seen any return yet.

    So thumbs up to 'pest off' and its organic.
