Pest identification please. Micro photo included.

Last two weeks of flowering.

Four plants, four strains.

Atomic, Pak Valley Kush, Purple OG #18, White Widow.

All affected, flowers dying from lowers working up.

Thought it was a mold, but my new microscope reveals a pest.

Have been spraying Dr. Zymes on medium strength daily.

Will take suggestions, but nothing too harsh.

can you snap some pics of the leaves/flowers and the damage they're doing?


definitely the larval stage of something..... 2 weeks from harvest i'd just blow them off physically with keyboard cleaner. But pics of the damage to the plant will tell more of the story.

Also can you tell us about the grow? are you in soil? where did you get the soil? etc...

Almost looks like thrips?

Might be worse like hemp russet mites.

troutman, the video you referenced shows me that they are indeed Hemp Russet Mites. Thank you. More research.

Green Cleaner this morning, I had two sample bottles. The microscope was for Christmas. More for looking at my teas, but this was not what I was thinking at all. Knowledge. Thanks for the links, you nailed it with Russet Mites. Insidious. Creeping death. And so friggin' small.

Clean. Bomb. Raise the temp to hatch, and repeat. With no host plant, I can tackle these creeps. Cheers.
