I found tiny white worms in my buds while trimming. Is there anyway to get rid of them other than spreading each bud & picking them out? They are about the size of a grain of rice and didn’t see them until they were about dry.
Protein, lol. The burrow in your buds. Their any rot?
No rot. Just gross
Do you have a picture?
Are they in your harvested buds?
Not my picture. But they look like this. These were called hemp borers but the ones I had were in the buds. Didn’t see them until final trim. Plants looked healthy before that.
That’s nasty… no advice other than ewwww
I agree. Yuk!
wow…finding them would ruin anyones day. should be able to pick them off I guess. Gonna need a bud wash
Little late at this point but next time spray with BT.
Been battling the Bugs and caterpillars for a bit now, yes its dishearting this close to harvest. I have rot it gross.
Any suggestions on what to do to prevent this next year would be appreciated. I bought ladybugs & have had a lot of them. On my plants. Used blackstrap molasses & did spray neem oil earlier in the summer but didn’t continue to spray because everything looked fine. All the stems & roots have been burned. Been growing for a few years in Michigans upper peninsula and this is the first time I’ve seen these.
Been spraying Montery BT and Captin Jacks dead bug rotating between the two, in a 4 day cycle when needed. When chopped doing bud wash on them before hanging. Just below the bridge troll here.
This is off topic Bentstick but what type of bow you shoot?
I shoot a crossbow, Excalibur Phinox (sp), shoulders are pretty wrecked from 35 ish yrs of trimming out houses. Before that it was High country Machined supreme and various recurves. My son shoots a Mathews. Will be taking first week of Oct off, and then a couple weeks in Nov, time to refill freezers. Shoot straight fellow hunters.
I shoot recurve Red Wing Hunter 2 and a Bear Grizzly.
Aim strait good luck out there and be safe.
