Unknown bugs in my roots

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I was moving my clones into bigger pots last night and found these little silver looking bugs in my roots mass, did not get a photo unfortunately. They vary in size, also seem to hang outside the bottom of the pot.

Any one got an idea of what they are and do I need to nuke them some how?

I have a weekly spray with neem or pyrol as it is, so not sure how they continue to live?

Thanks

Hey Durbs

Can’t help you without a pic bru.

Vary in size is also a little vague- some are pin heads, some are marbles?

I just googled root aphids and they are ugly fuckers. For a moment there I hoped you talked about springtails but a pic would be nice though.

Well I just googled springtails and seems I was wrong in what I had seen in my garden, seems I have springtail and not root aphids. This is a small blessing as what I have read is root aphids are near impossible to get rid of, now back to springtails how do I control these little bugs?

Thanks in advance.

Springtails are common in potted cannabis and are a good thing. They feed on dead stuff in the root zone and excrete good stuff. Don’t worry about them.

Good day ladies and gents, well at least I hope there are ladies on here too:)

After reading this yesterday, I got worried and checked my medium out (coco), and found these in the top under the covers,

Anyone have some advise, its always appreciated.

I didnt know that you can get pests in coco, is that straight coco/perlite or some kind of coco/soil/perlite combo?
