i think it's thrips that cause that damage to the leaves mate, either way whatever it is your best to bomb your tent after your grows finished and then wipe the walls, floor and ceiling down with a bleach or IPA solution.

i think it will finish but they do cause a lot of damage to the plants, you can get something called harkers that people use and that's supposed to kill them, its something that's used for pigeons normally, i'm sure @vince noir rock n roll star  can tell you exactly what to get,  i'm pretty sure he's the last person i seen mentioning it.

if theres no visible webs on the buds  and you`ve checked under the leaves and stems for any dots that seem to move (spidermites) then you got thrips ,they are feeding on the leaves ..you can do various things such as panic ,worry ,chop and bin ..or ..you could do simple things without chemical interaction ..

 

cover the top inch of soil with paper or sand or my fave diatemecious earth |(that shit kills little bugs by popping them on contact ) ,you could rinse the plants thoroughly under warm water ..a full dunk in a dustbin of warm water ..holding the hole plant under water for a minute or two ..sounds mad but will drown the fuck out of anything on the leaves ..you could get a pipette of diatemecious earth and puff affect leaves to make sure ..then wash off a couple of days later ..you could employ live predator bugs available from lots of online shops ..and let them do all the work ..

but think before using any chems ..you`ll want to smoke them buds eventually i suspect and they wont be for decoration ,

 

lots of diffferent ways to deal with multiple problems ..few ytears back everyone was using stuff like sgb plant invigator i think it was called ..worked a treat but im still unsure whether that stuff is safe ..ask more folk and have a look at greenhouse vegetable gardeners solutions ..you`ll get a lot of info from veg growers in this area .

Harka Mectin will do the job if your no more than 3 weeks in flower.

I've used it twice now on the same plants and no sign of a rematch.

Costs around a tenner in a 5ml bottle from a good pet store. Use 1ml per ltr spray all the plant. over /under the leaves. stems and even the soil. It hangs around in the leaves for a few weeks so I believe and will kill the hatchlings on the second application, hence why I did it twice for spider mites and leaf miners.

3/4 of a ltr of solution should be enough to do a med - Lrg  plant.

Good luck mate @Jammo85

 

 

Edit ;The other stuff is called SBPI iirc

thanks lads for all all that info and time you took to reply 

 

I’m about 7 weeks into flowering? 

It’s not spider mite it’s those thrips 

 

What should I do so far into flowering? 

 

Sand me on top of soil what does that do then?

What does it do.

It shreds the little buggers as the emerge from the soil and try to make their way up the plant.

Play sand is good

They nest in the soil then go and eat plant is it

thrips i dont think you need to worry about ..the layer of sand or d.e on the soil is more to break the cycle of fungus gnats from wriggly maggoty thing to flying nibbler .thrips probably this late wont make much difference .they are after the leaf material not the thc ..

id just keep an eye on the plants and not worry too much ,once youve harvested do a full clean down inc pots and tools ..rinse and repeat .

For thrips I always use Scotts Bug Clear. Its always worked for me but there's loads to choose from.

Ive used 10 million Nematodes mixed with water as a soil drench.Tonight im adding that 40 sachets of nematodes with 1000 in each sachet.They disperse over 4 weeks,one for each branch.

 

Personally I wouldnt spray anything this far into flower.

 

Im the same time into flower as you but I've caught them a bit earlier.I just pulled loads of lower leaves of that where marked.Then called in the Nematodes first go with them.

 

Ill be fucked if im spraying plants in flower.

Never had thrips but whitefly causes similar damage. If your lucky it's whitefly, their reproduction rate is a bit slower. Whitefly is pretty easy to see, looks like a real small maggot on the leaf.
