    I've been growing for a long time and I thought I had seen all the pests that can infest a marijuana plant but I have never seen this before. I'm assuming they are aphids at several life stages. Anyone know what's going on here? Has anyone seen this before? IMAG0312.jpg IMAG0311.jpg

    Either Aphids (You're so fucked) or Springtails (Not really an issue). But being that they're on your leaves, probably Aphids. Condolences.

    Not fucked at all actually. I harvested the whole room and everything looks great. No damage what so ever and I don't see anymore bugs. I'm just curious if anyone has experience with these and knows what they are and how to prevent them in the future.

    So what do you use to kill/prevent them other than lady bugs? Not trying to have more bugs

    And they were really only on a few leaves. I threw away the few nugs that had them on them but I'm not throwing away 5 lbs that look perfectly fine. Lol

    Diatomaceous earth for the soil; predatory bugs, pyrethrin spray, or Tabasco solution for the foliage.
