Need help with a bug ID Microscopy pics * 1
    #716862 - 02/22/14 03:15 AM (2 years, 9 months ago)

Entomology is not my forte. We grew a male for pollination this last year . We harvested the branches and dried them in a paper bag to let them finish maturing safely away from the ladies. It's been several months now  and we finally moved the pollen to glass vials.

Bad form, I know. No mold issues, but we noticed a couple microscopic bugs crawling around when pollinating some branches. I am here in hopes to ID what we may have introduces into our room. All pics taken at 40x

No clue what that is.  But I'm pretty sure the pollen isn't really viable that long.

I'm not saying that pollen won't degrade within a few days, but there are accounts of it being viable for a period of time after harvest.

Quoted from link above
"Pollen stored using these principles has allowed breeders to store pollen for up to 17 years and still remain viable. I suspect it would last longer still, but these are the results we currently have to work with."

Wow.  I just heard it didn't really last that long.  But I don't handle it much.  Magash might be able to chime in on this one.  He's our resident breeder.

I have been scouring the interwebs and may have come up with an ID actually.

It may be in the order of Psocoptera, family Liposcelididae (Book Lice). I am not %100 percent on that though.

As far as the viability of the pollen, if I remember I will bump in a few weeks with an update.

It does look like a louse.

It is like lice and it likes the pollen. The bugs themselves aren't much of a problem till they shit in your pollen and the pollen starts to mold.

Now as far a pollen storage for months without putting in a fridge. Good luck with that.

Read the post by Chimera and a few others like High Country but don't take much from the others to seriously. ICMag is a great place for information but there is just as much bad info there.

Just an update on the pollination, it seems to have been successful. Pollinated a few buds on several different plants staged out a week apart in bloom. 1st specimen was pollinated at 6 weeks in. It produced 6 medium sized seeds in the zoned area that seem viable.
