bugs?

22 posts in this topic

When I watered my plant today, I seen little tiny white bugs crawling on soil. Looked at them under scope, the are maybe a 1/16" inches long with 2 attennaes. Noticed during flush. Does anyone know what they are and how to kill them. Only on soil. 2 weeks to go. Please help fast, wanna nip this thin fast.

Thanks a lot.

Most often in my country when you have white tiny tiny things crawlings they are "Soil Fly"

Go check in advanced technique there are a Pests review ;)

Thanks guys. I think they are the bugs that eat roots. The are only in soil. When I was flushing I started see then on surface. Now cant see them crawling. I put one under scope. They are almost transparent with antennas.

Tobacco juice kills them

easiest remedy right here, two or three cigarettes (the stronger the better, sans filter) in about a gallon or half a gallon soaked over night.

strain and this is about a one plant dose

I use "sans" but i can't speak for the rest of canada :P

i don't think tobacco juice works for spider mites... but it should work for some pests i just can't remember right now

not that i've seen, prefer to use fresh tobacco (as in grow yourself) as their are many chemicals in cigarettes.

i wouldn't add the tobacco juice to your nutes, not sure it would be effective that way.

I mainly use it for Foliar only. the only difference i've noticed is my cat won't eat the leaves if they've been sprayed.

also doing it when the lights go on and half way thru their day cycle is ideal, you don't want to leave you fans damp during their sleep period.

IN bloom it will take extra care, keep humidity down, keep the temp up so it can evaporate at a decent rate, and don't spray in the last 3-4 weeks of bloom

you could end up with a tobacco tasting bud... ew

Use cinnamon it's a natural way to kill fungus which is what the knats are eating and thriving on poor drainage or overwatering is the cause. Just sprinkle in the soil. Pce

sounds like fungas gnat larvae , but they dont usually crawl on the surface?

are there little black bugs flying around? about 3mm look like tiny mosquitoes?

if so youll need to kill them before they lay eggs...

cinnamon wont kill anything they just deter them..

and ive tried everything to get rid of these and nothing i found worked, cinnamon included.

what i ended up doing is.. containing my grow to one room, which inturn contains the gnats to that room. Then while the plants were in veg stage, i would use flyspray to spray everything and kill the bugs flying around. so everyday for like 2 weeks i done this. They havent been back.

i was told to dry out the first 2inches of soil as the larvae dont like it dry, they like the moist.. but that never worked either, they are persistent little fuckers.

so if youre hand watering in soil the best thing would be to feed from the bottom of the pots leaving the top part dry.

but i tried everything and the only thing that worked for me was fly spray, sounds brutal but they havent come back.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
