If you are growing your own cannabis, you might be aware of the fact that the plants may be infested by several different types of pests. One of them is the Aphids. The most common type of Aphids found on cannabis is the Female Aphid, which is called carotenthrophytes. They have long skinny bodies and a dark green, brownish color. These insects attach themselves to the lower leaf surfaces of the plant, feeding on the nutrients that accumulate on the inner bark and are then taken up into their exoskeleton where they release enzymes to help them break down the plant material.
There are other types of Aphids such as the Whitefly, which has a similar body shape to a fly. However, the male chiefly differs from a fly because it has wings. This type of whitefly can damage a marijuana plant by destroying the young growth and therefore reducing the ability of the plant to produce resin. The larvae of the aphid will then feed on the plant’s leaves, eventually becoming the adult whitefly that we know of as the whitefly. It is important to note that although these two pests have similar appearances, there are subtle differences between them that make identifying them more difficult.
Another type of common Aphid that can infest cannabis plants is the ground fly. The appearance of a ground fly is very similar to a carpenter ant, which is what it is called in the United States. However, there are some noticeable differences between the two, and they are able to infest plants much deeper than carpenter ants. The difference between the two is that the ground fly actually injects saliva into the ground to loosen soil for their movement. This is how it can survive in humid soil without having to move, unlike its cousin, the aphid.
Many people are not familiar with the term “biological control” because it is often associated with professional pest management companies. However, biological control can be performed by anyone with even a rudimentary knowledge of gardening. The methods used by these pests are similar to those used by some insects, such as wasps and flies, but they are much more effective because they are directly dealing with the problem. If you suspect that you are being attacked by any of these two groups of pests, it is important to contact an expert who can perform effective biological control.
One of the most unusual of all Aphids is the red spider. gorilla glue #4 graine While this is a natural occurring pest that is found throughout North America, it has been particularly destructive to cannabis farms. The red spider is very small, about one-third the size of an ordinary silk insect. This is a valuable asset to having an indoor crop because it makes it easier for biological control companies to get at the plant while eradicating pests without directly touching the plant. Unfortunately, because the red spider does not leave any residue on the plant, there is also no way to tell if there has been direct damage done by the pest.
If you discover that your indoor crops have been infected with a known pest, or if you simply want to make sure that you do not become a victim, it is important to understand the methods of extermination that are often used by pest control specialists. Often, companies will use baits of neem oil, dishsoap, petroleum jelly, or other substances that are designed to be ingested by the insects that are attacking your crops. These are not only unnatural, but they can often be dangerous to humans who are sensitive to insect bites. There are organic and non-organic pesticides that can be sprayed around your garden to repel insects. If you choose to use these methods, however, it is essential to consult with a licensed pest control company so that you can be sure that the products being used do not pose a risk to your family.
