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

you use "sans" in canada instead of without?

nice tips for the tobaco juice, for what pest does it works beside this one?

Quick question. Does the tobacco juice hurt the plant at all.

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
