Those white spots are buggs bro ?
What type of soil is that
@Hogmaster @garrigan62 @Donaldj
Looks like millions but only when i shake cup up and get them all to the top…
Yes all them white spots…springtails is what i was told was a possiblity
You doors or out ?
They cant be good for the roots bro
Looks like root aphids?
Yeah that what i was thinking to but ive never had to deal with them @Growit any advice for our friend
Looks super wet as well no mold ? I see the bugs but looks like mold in corners
I have em in my vermicompost my veggie garden and now in my cannabis
They are not bothering any of my plants since I been using exile and sm 90
Cannot kill em but the miticide and fungicide seem to keep em off my plants
I was hoping for spring tails but they do not jump just crawl around
No mold, looks wet cuzz its a slurry mix…only way to get a pic, they spring and jump right under the soil surface…didnt effect plant…only a week or two left before i trash soil far away .
I found them all over the roots of my pepper plants and freaked out a bit but after the sm 90 and exile they are staying away from the roots of all my plants as I use the same foliar feeding and bug control regimen for my whole garden
No these jump and spring and run…only way to get pic is to make a slurry so they will float to the top.
I would give those buds a good washing when harvest time comes as wwll
Then they are spring tails
Harmless too your plants supposed to be good for the dirt
just dealt with them month or 2 back they live in soil during last stages of their life cycle so are hard to kill off. Spinosad is a plant inocculation bacteria which makes plant toxic to them and other pests and can be used as soil drench and yes it’s organic being bacteria
