Need help identifying bugs/pests in growroom

Hi there,

I just discovered some bugs in my growroom and was wondering if someone could tel me what exactly they are.
Its a small 1,20m x 1,20 tent and there are 5 future motherplants in there which all lookreally healthy.
As you can see there are 2 different kinds and im rly worried about the spidet mite looking one.

Thanks in advance

Looks to me at first glance like fungus gnats and some type of aphids. It would be useful to know what general area in the world you live in.

Spider mites are related to ticks and spiders and have 8 legs

This is a twin spotted spider mite, the most common type:


This is red spider mite:


After a bad infection and they are established they start to make webbing:


You dont have this...

This is a fungus gnat:


Looks like the first and second images you posted. In their larvae stage they can be damaging to the roots of your seedlings. In adult stage they are mostly just a nuisance. They are very easy to control with some diatomacious earth covering the tops of your pots (0.5 - 1cm layer), and feeding water and nutrients from the bottom rather, to let the top dry out.

Aphids can come in many colors and sizes, there are lots of different types of them. I'm not sure if the third pic is an aphid but thats my guess. Just hope that they are not root aphids which are terrible.

Hey, thanks for the info so far. I wasnt all that worried about the fungus gnat, i have had them for a couple of times and they never did any real damage

Im much more worried about the spider mitw looking one. Ill include more photos so maybe it will be easier to tell what they are. Oh and on the plants itself there isnt a single bug. Its all just on side of the pots and on the surface of the soil.

Thanks alot for all the help

that second pic looks a bit worrying as I do count 8 legs, the other it looks like 6 legs.

EDIT: actually I looked again and it could just be some fluff not an extra leg in the front. I think its 6 legs.

Letting the top 2" of the soil dry up will slow fungus gnats down.

They really like wet soils.
