    Thanks for the quick reply! I did more research after my post and what I have is a thrip infestation. I've bought a spray for it and I looks like its working... But how long does it take before they're completely eradicated?

    What are you spraying them with? Veg or Flower? How many plants?

    I use this. Captain Jacks.
    It worked so well I started using it on my outdoor veggie garden.

    There's only 3 plants now...the fourth was damaged so bad by these pests before I realized it that I had to cut her down (I normally only start from seeds and have never had any pests in my garden but I was doing someone a favor and took their clones in...they didn't even know they had a problem). I only have one in flowering cycle, but she hasn't kicked out white hairs yet. The other two are clones 3-4 weeks old. Captain Jack's with Spinosad is what I've been using. The thrips have done some damage to all 3 plants but no damage that they can't recover from. I'm spraying every day and I'm not seeing any more of those buggers but how much longer should I spray? I still have one clone that has been quarantined from all the others but I still sprayed her too...roots are starting and I have to put her in the tent soon. Pics below...

    Daily spray is too often. Every three days will catch new ones as they hatch and 4 treatments in a row should be enough with a weekly spray for a month to get the stragglers. Neem with some Safer's soap worked for me.

    Make sure you get underneath the leaves really good as well.
