Looks like thrips to me


I’ll just follow @Skydiver around and confirm his diagnosis haha. Good call: I would say the same.

Hit the whole plant hard with a 50/50 mix of 3% peroxide and distilled water; really douche the plant. Wait 24 hours and spray either Captain Jack’s Dead Bug Brew or Safer BtK. Wait 5 days then repeat.


Yes, looks like thrips.
Ive used this in the past. https://www.amazon.com/Monterey-LG6150-Garden-Spinosad-Concentrate/dp/B000BWY3OQ

For those that care its omri rated. Use this several times, a few days apart, and send those bugs on their way.


@Drinkslinger @Skydiver thank yall for the help i went out and got some beneficial nematodes for the larvae in the soil but i think i messed up i had top dressed with diatomaceous earth and forgot to scoop it out before watering them in :unamused::sob: so i think i killed them ima go looking for the captain jacks to after work hopefully home depot is still open with all this corna stuff going on
