    Default Are these spider mites?

    Noticed a few of my leaves looking a bit worse for wear, flipped them over and noticed small catterpillar/maggot looking things on them.

    Here's a pic under a loupe


    Not the best hut I'm hoping you guys can help me out.

    Yeah, it needs sorting, I think Bud recommends Bug Clear for fruit & veg

    Do I just need to spray them all over with it? I'll grab some tomorrow.

    Soak them...especially under the leaves & top of pots...you can buy a concentrated bottle that you mix with water...better value than the spray but you will then need a spray bottle

    Sounds like some good advice from both BL and Sadface. I haven't used either, so I don`t know which is best, but I`m leaning towards Sadface`s advice if you have already filliped a couple of weeks ago. Path of least potential harm as I see it as I don`t like spraying flowers with anything.

    Bug clear works very well but just be aware its systemic so you do end up smoking it

    I'm not saying hotshot strips are good advice ...and I would have a little dig around for info about em ..there's lots said about them ..but they work for me used in moderation ..if I see a bug I want em gone ASAP with minimal dramas and repeat treatments that sometimes don't work and so on ...these do work every time but the whole packaging of the strips is a health warning ...I hate pests and want a guarantee fix ..others would rather go the softly softly approach ...hence why I said not every body's cup of tea

    Also I always have yellow sticky traps hanging aswell ,now they don't do harm and are very effective to hold em to a manageable degree...thrips piss me off no end but I've also found that they do most damage in veg ..rather than when in flower ...but definatly hang up some yellow paper sticky traps
