Hey everyone, I have 2 autos plants that have been going about 2 weeks and I’m seeing these bugs on the leaves and also possible spots of bug waste. Outdoor, Soil, Anyone know what this is and how to treat it?
Also please ignore the white spots, it is DE that spilled.
Not sure what that critter is, it is not a mite. Way to big for a mite. But I did notice you have a whole passel of egg cases on the underside of the leaf in your second pic original post. Rub them off with your finger and crush them.
Permethrin outta do it. It’s a safe natural insectacide. I also use Lost Coast, but it is better at being a deterrent than a kill, it will kill most stuff, but takes a lot and frequent application to do it. kinda pricy too.
Also try some diatomaceous earth it’s a powder completely inert, it basically chops their exoskeleton up.
The worse you have to worry about DE is inhaling it when you apply it. Hell I drink it in water it’s good for you, gives you good nails and teeth, and will kill any parasites you might pick up too lol.
