Something burrowed into the main trunk!!!!

Theres something that ate a hole into the Main trunk at the soil level. Its eating the entire main stem from the inside out....right at dirt level. We already lost 1 plant, now were on our way to loosing 2. Any ideas what does this? I cant see whats in there??? Im going now to take pics and to spray Azamax and Thuricide into the holes. Ive never seen this. Its not a caterpiller I dont think. Its a grey bug of some sort I think. I opened up the trunk on the dead one and there was a tunnel going up the stem but there was a grey bug in it. Maybe just using the hole the caterpiller opened up??? IDK?

Some sort of stem borer?
Was the bug you found some sort of maggot ?

I do feel your pain. I logged on this morning to ask about my plant that suffered what sounds like the very same thing happened to yours. I noticed it looked droopy yesterday and thought I might have overwatered. This morning it looked nearly dead. Pulled it out of the dirt and noticed what looked like a beaver had chewed right at the soil line. Been growing almost nonstop for 20 years and never had this happen before. I dumped the plant out into a tray and searched through the soil and found nothing.

None of the other 6 plants have any problem. These have been vegging almost a month.

I think he is right :( The larvae are weak to strains of BT but once they are in there, I don't think there is any getting them out, just killing them. In corn they use systemic pesticides to prevent them from taking hold, but I don't want to use systemic anything on my marijuana.

put that sucker in some loose organic soil and the micro bacteria may help.

Hey keif is that indoors? Ive had roly polies do that before when they had no mulch to munch on. Kinda surprised me but i caught them on there so I know it was the culprit.

Research Borers, such as Squash Vine Borers. You can cut a vertical slit in the stem and haul his/her sorry ass out of the stem or kill critter in place. Plant may or may not recover. Worth a try. You can also inject Neem or any number of insecticides with a big syringe. Good luck. -granger

Yes, it's indoors. I didn't know roly polies could do that to a plant but I'll watch from now on when potting up. The rootball was smaller than expected, so something had been eating roots too. Just never had that happen before.
