    Since I came home from camping my seedling has been experiencing a slight bug issue. A few times a day ill check on her and there will be one or two at most 3 microscopic bugs just chillen on the tops of her leaves. I would say spider mites but dont they like the underside? When i see them i spray them with water which seems to either instantly kill or immobilize them. then I squish em. Bastards. They almost look like they have antenna but are literally so small its hard to tell. They are more round in shape ill get a picture asap when the next one pops up, not sure you will be able to see anything from a picture though. they are like a 40th of a inch.

    Definitely will need a picture. Spider mites will bring webbing and I think you need a scope to see them don't quote me on that thought! They might be Aphids, thrips..What color are they? I would definitely invest in some insecticidal soap, neem, or spinosad product, it will save you in the days to come.

    Almost certain its not a thrip, could be a aphid i guess, they are light tan in color. ive been leaving my fan on and spray with water regularly hoping to slow or kill the infestation, seems to be keeping them in check thus far. shes only about 2 inchess tall right now and on her second set of true leaves.

    Make that a darker tan its hard to tell they are so small. i can see there little legs though so not impossible to see.

    quarantine the bastards maybe? stick them on a plate in the fridge. mites die there, so do their eggs I think. cold ice water kills mites too. I'd dip the whole thing, pot and all, into a bath of neem/soap/ice water a few times and be done with it.

    Aphids can come in different colors. Water won't kill them, they sound a bit bigger than what you're describing though.

    Here's Aphids

    If I could pick out which one it was, I wouldnt be posting this on here. They are too small to take any sort of picture.

    Most likely the nymphs the wind/fan works but they will keep coming back and multiple on their own ! One can give birth to 3-5 and those three to five will do the same thing. I'd get some actual spray on the plants asap ! They will destroy a seedling. Hell most bugs will !

    She seems to be doing fine, hopefully stays that way. I'm home all the time so I check for the little fuckers very often.

    How do the plant leaves look? When spider mites chomp on a leaf they leave a mark... BTW, no matter what the bug, at least you can use neem oil in veg!

    Well, went away for a day, back now max so far 3 at once on my girl. Doesn't seem to be doing damage. Sprayed water, killed them. Going to order some 3-1 insect killer or neem oil tonight. Getting pretty sick of it but hey at least it's not a crazy infestation #knockonwood. Here's a better pic of the critter image.jpeg
