I have bugs. Couple different kinds in fact… I have lady bugs which make me smile, knats and flies which i like stuck to tape, a bunch of spiders- the jumping kind, which i figure are good because they dont spin web everywhere and eat the stuff that doesnt end up stuck to the tape. What i do have that im unsure about are a flying black insect, 6 legs, and antennae half as long as their legs. Theyre black with orange lines around theyre bodies, they fly, and are about half an inch long. They seem pradarory by their constant searching action around the plants, nothing is being eaten that i see. I live in cdntral alabama.
I grow in the basement.
I have 6 plants in soil, 5gal containers, generic no nutrient enriched potting soil.
I have 4 5gal hydro buckets,each wih a top feed pump into baskets filled with expanded clay pebble, air stone in each bucket,each independant. Each run between 2-3 gal of juice, 900ppm, 6.5-7 pH; adjusted daily. I use a mixture of liquid 7-4-10 and 5-1-1 fish goop. I buffer with white vinegar, havnt had to go up yet.
So is that black bug my buddy or do they have to go?.. i see five.
