they appear to be soil mites and not root aphids.

 

 

the common "root aphid" is black - not white.

 

 

aphids are generally much larger than that as well.

 

 

soil mites will not harm your plant & will only contribute to the soil. there is no need to try and kill them.

 

 

on the other hand, your seedling could have trouble sprouting in foxfarm soil, depending on the brand of theirs that you used.

 

 

 

edit: BotaniGuard did not work to kill root aphids when i was battling them the one time. it was completely ineffective.

they're one of the worst pests (probably!!) that can affect your marijuana plants. to kill them, use "Imidacloprid." it's an aphid killer and has been used in several pesticides.

you can also use Bayer Fruit & Vegetable for Root Aphids

the imidacloprid willkill the aphids, as we have used it in the past for aphids, mealybugs, thrips, spider mites, etc IN A COMMERCIAL GREENHOUSE WITH ORNAMENTALS. this stuff is not to be used on plants for consumption.

 

 

it is a systemic pesticide that will stay in the plant until you harvest (given imidacloprid's half-life).

 

 

i had the same root aphid problems and started over because i did not want to go the systemic pesticide route. that shit can give you pancreatic cancer.

 

 

yea sure bayer may say its safe for fruit & vegetables, but bayer also said heroin was a safe alternative to morphine.

 

 

 

its your call. i wouldnt do it & i would just start over but to each their own  :confused_2:

i wish you would have posted a picture earlier. those actually look more like soil mites than root aphids. well, the root aphids i had at least.

 

 

than again, i live on a different side of the US than you. being in central california, wine country, you probably have alot of those fuckers that are resiliant to pesticides. my condolences.

 

 

when i had them i had to start over, like i said. since than i have added healthy doses of neem & karanja cake to my soil mix before transplanting & i havent had pest problems. i tried the neem cake during the infestation & it failed miserably. just an FYI
