    Hi rollitup , I harvested today my autos and saw one of them has aphids on it , a few lower branches and top cola is free of aphids , the most of them was on leaves and I detected few that stick to trichomes and unable to move I removed all aphids I can see under sunshine with magnifying glass honestly was not too many aphids on buds my surprise, but under fan leaves was full of aphids ,

    I put them now to dry ? Is this ok ? my concern is if aphids grow again on buds after I harvest possible ? there is no visible aphids on buds now I removed likely all under sunlight and with magnifying glass .

    What about all the ones that crawled into your buds and died.

    you mean inside of bud where seeds develop ? if you mean except inside of bud the outer layer that trichome covered I found few there stuck to trichomes and can't move (good one) , removed all roughly , I also opened the layers of bud and removed every aphid was ,
    but my surprise is they seem do not like buds at all, most of them was under fan leaves

    People pay to eat bugs. Don't worry about puffing on a few.

    I know it’s a touchy subject but you can wash your bud to get shit off when it’s freshly harvested.

    You will never know their there when you smoke it enjoy, As a rule by old school growers is if you have bugs deal with it by picking a few leafs or spraying a friendly safe soap in veg only , I had crops when I was younger that where covered in a white blanket lmao people didn't complain

    Leave the buds out and the bugs will usually crawl away. Fluid suckers like aphids arn't usually interested in dried bud. You can use fans or cold temps to persuade them to leave.

    Compared to some of the things i picked out of brick. An aphid? Id be more worried about them before harvest.

    I decide not to use spray that late in flower and let them go finish and they did , but the fact I found is aphids can not live easily on flowering cannabis , they can live on fan leaves but as they move into buds all stick to trichomes and die ,

    the infection on buds was not proper just few there on lower branches and all doomed by trichomes , but lower fan leaves was badly effected ,

    when I compare this plant to other plant near it I can tell it has very low odor , other plant has very strong odor and completely aphid free ,

    and aphid effected plant produced more resins trichomes compare this to other same gen plant .

    any way I think I removed every aphid with Tweezers , you can see I did job and buds are all part part
