Eggs With Legs
    #284020 - 09/21/09 07:39 PM (7 years, 2 months ago)

Hi All.  Ive been looking around for info on these, at first I thought they were eggs but on closer inspection I noticed the little legs on them, at the same time I  noticed the ants. Could the "eggs" be some sort of larvae? If not anyone know what they are? I can't seem to find much info on these I don't want to use any kind soap solution as I don't want my baby to taste like soap. This is my first grow, and thrilled that I got this far.

Aphids drink the plant juices and what they shit out the ants like. The ants actually use the aphids like cattle. The ants actually put the aphids there and collect what they shit out.

Aphids are small plant-eating insects. They feed on sap and phloem, somewhat intravenously, and are prey to a multitude of larger insects. Depending on the type of aphid, they could be disastrous. Many carry viruses that are susceptible to plants; sometimes it can kill the plant.

Usually, they are harmless and just "graze", looking for more sap. Ants are often nearby, moving them to areas where the aphids might produce more food, since ants eat the byproducts of aphids. It's very much like the relationship between man and cow.

interesting info [Re: Bratcat]
    #284800 - 09/22/09 07:25 PM (7 years, 2 months ago)

Aphids those pesky house plant and landscape pests are sometimes called plant lice. You’ll find them on the tender new growth or on the undersides of leaves. They are equipped with piercing/sucking mouth parts where they ingest fluids from new tender growth and stems.

Size wise the aphid is tiny about 1/8 of an inch and oval in shape. They may be green, pink, brown, white, black, yellow, red or gray in color. Aphids are commonly found on young, developing leaves and stems in clusters or colonies. Their feeding distorts the new growth and they sometimes cause leaves to curl.



Aphids live and work in colonies and are generally easy to control. Insecticidal soap, will kill them on contact. You may need to repeat applications three times to be sure to kill the eggs as they hatch. Because aphid eggs are air-born, keep an eye out for more, you may need to re-apply.

If one of the commercial soaps is not available, try 3-4 tablespoons of liquid dishwashing soap per gallon of water and apply as a foliar spray to your plant. Soap is effective in managing aphids, safe for people and the environment so is Neem Oil which I’ve found to be very effective in controlling aphids.

Lady bugs or the trusted Neem oil. Those bugs also look like they could be thrips. After a single spraying with neem oil, water, and a very small amount of biodegradeable dish soap for an emulsifier all thrips were gone on my plants. It does take a few days for them to fully get the effects of the neem though. Neem oil only harms the bad garden bugs, and doesn't have an effect on good garden predators like ladybugs
