I believe these are spider mites right

Please help confirm what to do

Has anyone use spinosad for the pest on cannabis. Is it safe. I hear Canada has banned this from use on cannabis production. I want to get other opinions on spinosad usage

Those aren’t spider mites, but I don’t know what they are. I’d try captain jacks dead bug and see if it stops them.

They look like rolly pollies.


Except the last picture is some kind of beetle. Almost looks like a Boll Weevil. ( I live in cotton country LOL)

Large scale, commercial grows are far different than your typical home grow.

Agree with this. And yes it is spinosad, the same as I give my dog once a month for flea prevention. Safe and effective, just wash your buds at harvest. :wink:

Well My Ding - A - Ling its a darn Sow Bug in #1 & 2 - #3 is a Purple Pimp eater see the wild lights, funny hat, gold grill and walking stick.


Can you get a better pic of the second one
I believe it’s a minute pirate based on its shape but too dark to see details…
The first one looks like a pill bug

Neither one are going to damage your plant …pill bugs eat stink bug eggs and dead plant matter and are considered good for your soil

A minute pirate is one of the best general predatory insects there is

Does the second one look like this in the light ? If so you are just fine …
A boil weevil is more round with a snout sort of thing …and doesn’t have antenna like the bug you show here

Last oic looks like a flea beetle. They don’t fly and leaves little white spots on the lower leaves where they feed. First 2 are rolley pollies, pill bugs, doodlebugs, whatever you wanna call then. They are good for your soil. Flea beetles no bueno. Captain Jacks Dead Bug Brew for the flea beetles

I actually took it out side after I took the pic I killed it I sprayed both plants with alcohol and water and left outside all day after the rinse to dry up good hopefully it will keep ‘em gone after a few tries of the spray. I’m new to growing so wish me luck I will take a pic If I see some more tomorrow or so thank you all for your inputs much appreciated

They look like roly polys IMO I don’t know what impact they have on gardens but it looks like that’s what it is

I did look up Rollie pillows and sol bugs they look alike. Any ideas on how to get rid of them. I read this mean that the soil is good any opinions on that

Kill’n me :love_you_gesture:

Kinda looks like flesh eating beetle that’s called dermestids not for sure though
