They move sort of quick.
@Ynotfish looks like early stages of mites but I’m no pro
For sure found some aphids in the other tent but they were green. Closest picture i could find to it was Montdorensis typhlodromips montdorensis.
Appreciate everyone helping.
Yup, unfortunately that looks like aphids. They are a pain to get rid of… Try to find 2 or 3 ways to get rid of them and alternate treatments every other day…
@Caligurl should also have a few ways to help get rid of them…
Better to just reset the tent?
I have not had good luck with CJDB for aphids. It’s one of the only things it doesn’t work on for me… we’ll them and flea beetles
I use PureCrop1 and it works great PLUS you can combine it with other insecticides like CJDB or BT
I did not see aphids on the label. Would you reset the tent? How long do you go full halt in a room to rid these?
Would you trash the grow or go full nuclear on it? Never delt with them before. They look like a pain.
I wouldn’t trash the plants, treat…treat and treat. @StonedCold13 made a good recommendation after treatment. Lady bugs are pure assassins, Amazon sells these
Uv supplement could help with aphids.
Copied from Google
" Many insects prefer to move toward environments with a higher intensity of UV light [35,36]. However, aphids and whiteflies seem to be repelled by high-intensity UV light"
Aphids i do believe.
Will see if the hydroponics store has ladybugs. My main concern is killing them before i flip. Should of flipped this week then found these. Plants are in coco and about max height for the tent.
Things i have on hand are diatomaceous earth, captain jacks bonide, sns 209 and 2 hot shot strips.
Also read a little if temps get to 90 plus they drop off. I can maybe get my tent to 100 if needed.
I wouldn’t raise the temps Growmie, you’ll end up with 2 problems
@OGIncognito is right. You would only risk more problems without being sure you’ll get rid of all the aphids.
If you can, take your plants outside or in a shower and rinse the heck out of them to try to “wash” away most of the visible aphids.
Then start your treatments with your captain jacks. If it’s possible try to order some predator bugs… ladybugs, praying mantis…
And try to get a second way of treating the plants, maybe neem oil or something similar.
Alternate treatments every two or 3 days so the aphids don’t just get immune to one treatment…
Crap. Seen to late. Brought it up to 98 degrees Fahrenheit and 96% humidity. For like 7 hours
Hydroponics store had no bugs. Added these two my arsenal. I get the lady bug part but wife just got notice of lay off.
Well, when it rains, it pours…
Sorry about your wife…
