Black little spirdermites
    #791616 - 08/29/15 08:04 PM (1 year, 3 months ago)

One early morning my friend's butler's father's brother's dish washer was looking at his plants. He was enjoying what he was seeing, big monsterplants with big long buds...

He was feeling very satisfied. Counting, imagining how much he will get out of his magical garden, but suddenly his wonderful state of being was changed:

"What are these little fuckers?!" he thought to himself. They were just like spidermites but black. He has found that out of his many plants only one was infected by them (he later realised that most of his plants had at least few of those fuckers, but nothing like the one he have had approached first).

He chopped few buds (the ones that were heavily infected by the fuckers (btw, to his surprise, no other bud on that plant had those fuckers).

The buds were really big... Hardly fitted in big jar (I'm talking reaaaal big), he's going to watercure the shit out of those fuckers, letting them die, letting them drown... Everybody needs oxygen, even those fuckers.

They ruined the bud, it wasn't the time to chop it yet...

Anyway, does anyone how to get rid of them? Also, what the fuck are they?

Avid is the best from what I hear, but should only be used before flowering stage.

If you have them on your buds theres not much you can do.
scrub shit down with clorox after and use different soil
Scrub lights, buckets ect ect

The pictures not that great but those black spots look wayyy too big to be spider mites. Honestly it doesn't even look like a bug to me, it looks like caterpillar shit (which means they're eating your bud). I could be wrong though, like I said the photo is not very good.


If you do have spider mites, mighty wash works very well.

They are not spider mites... That's the point, they are black ticks, something what black spider mite would look like.

I think they are called black aphid, but not quite sure.

To me, these look like adult Root Aphids.  Root Aphids come in many, shapes, forms, and sizes.  Their final form is much larger than a spider mite, with a similar beetle-like, rounded body.  They collect in large clusters on buds, undersides of leaves, and on the stems.

My advice is to not use anything nuclear, and just let them go.  At this point you can't really do anything about it unless you want to spray down the buds.  And even then they are hard to get rid of.

I definitely wouldn't do a "water cure" as water curing completely ruins the flower as well.  If you cure them normallly, these guys will eventually hop off, having no sustenance to leach.

If their outside I would spray them with the hose (preferably with adjustable nozzle). The force of the water should get them off. I know that works with mites most of the time.

They are aphids, indeed.

He didn't do much and he won't, but he wonders - how to prevent those fuckers next time?

Only one plant is being watercured since it was terribly infected, others are being simply dried and after all the drying p. much everything will be made into dabs/cookies. Afterall, he couldn't watercure all of it, since he hasnt got a big barell, he's a buckets' man.

P.S. No worries, he got many good air cured buds since he took some before the outbreak of insects.

Since no one put that answer here

Control:

Beauveria bassiana is a beneficial fungus fatal to many insects including aphids.
Herbal oil pesticides contain essential oils distilled from plants that are effective and safe for people and pets but not pests. Several brands are available. Ed Rosenthal's Zero Tolerance is highly effective.
Insecticidal soap sprays coat and smother aphids.
Pyrethrum is a natural plant based pesticide that is widely available.
Neem oil smother insects but leaves an oily residue.
Herbal teas that include capsaicin, cinnamon oil, cloves, coriander oil, garlic and Italian seasoning are also effective. Mix 1 tablespoon of spices per quart of water. If the plant has necrosis from strength, dilute it. The herbs can be mixed to make your own concoction.


Prevention:
Air Filtration: Aphids are airborne for part of their life cycle, so a fine dust filter in the air intake prevents aphid entry.
Monitoring: Check the plants regularly for aphids-at least twice weekly when plants are growing rapidly. most species of aphids cause the greatest damage when temperature are warm but not hot (65-80F)(18-26C). They are most prevalent along the upwind edge of the garden, close to the outside sources of aphids; check leaf undersides, where many species hang out.
Check for ants: when they are present aphids are much more difficult to control, so they must also be eliminated.
Catch infestations early. Once their numbers are high and they have begun to distort and curl leaves, aphids are hard to control because the curled leaves shelter them from insecticides or natural enemies.
Outdoors, aphids are usually not a problem because of natural enemies such as lady beetles, lacewings and syrphid fly larvae.
Good Luck
