  3. Aphids. You'd better get them under control fast. Neem and or insecticidal soap.

  6. The first picture is moth eggs and the rest are aphids. Both are bad. I had a bad aphid infestation so I bought some unscented dish soap and some cayenne powder (if you have a Dollar Tree close by cayenne powder is only $1 there, otherwise it's like $5+ everywhere else).

    I use a 4 gallon backpack sprayer and mix 3-4 tablespoons of dish soap and 2-3 tablespoons cayenne powder in it with water. Wait until sundown and give them a good soaking. It's basically a home made mostly organic pesticide that kills the fuck out of aphids. Two or three applications and they're toast.

    As far as the moth eggs, just hunt for the eggs, remove the finger they're on, and keep a close eye out for caterpillars. Just look for chomped on leaves.

  7. The aphid eggs look kind of like the aphids but smaller and with no legs. Little translucent white dots under the leaves but they typically are spread out and not in a bunch.

    And if you see these black and orange bugs they're lady bug larvae. The cayenne powder won't harm them and they eat a shitload of aphids. IMG_20190711_081748.jpg

    And this is what they look like when they're molting into ladybugs. Don't kill or remove them if possible.

  8. Thanks for all the great info! I sprayed the plants with a dishsoap and neem oil mixture! Gonna go to the local grow shop tomorrow for some lady bugs and to see what they'd recommend using.
