I had about 50 or so of these guys crawling around last week on the plants and on top of the soil. I hit them with a liberal dose of neem oil and today I found this guy apparently on his own. I have searched to identify him without any luck… does anyone know what he is? And if so, the best way to treat, although the neem seemed to work well but may need another dose. I have some spinosad arriving today but after I ordered it I read further discussions about BTi so I may order that as I believe I can add it directly into my watering routine and not affect the taste and smell of the buds???
3-gallon grow bags, Happy Frog soil, good LED light rated for 4 x 2, 18 - 6 hr light, Amnesia feminized autos in the eighth week.
I call them “stink bugs” not sure what the actual name for them are. The one thing I know is, if you smash them they put off a horrendous odor. Not sure if they are harmful to plants. But just based on their offensive smell they should be eliminated with extreme prejudice.
