I have a video of a little tiny white mite walking around. Its from my iphone zoomed in. Any information is appreciated!
Ive checked under a scope it doesnt have antennas like the aphids do. It looks like some kind of mite under a scope.My guess would be an aphid.
If you are still in veg get a 1 gallon pump sprayer and some Spinosad and follow the directions on mixing.
The sprayer helps you get under the leaves and everywhere on plants.

The Spinosad is safe and works on many pest.
1 gallon sprayer makes good use of small batches you mix up.
I have tried they are so small its hard to get a pic or video.Can you get a good, clear, still close-up? That would be extreemly helpfull.
no it doesn't look like that either. Under the scope it looks like a white/clear mite.o they look like that? That's a mealybug
I think your right! I have had leaf damage but also had thrips.Try to make a positive ID before you go All nuclear. People pay a lot of money for beneficial,Predatory mites. You may have lucked out and have them. I’ve never seen a harmful mite Move that fast, like someone above stated. Do you see any leaf damage?
Yes very hard to believe for me also. I have had some worry some leaf damage and made me scope things out and i found those bugs. Ive had them for 3 runs now and my last 2 runs were my best. But i was also spraying wettable sulfur every 4 days. So its hard to tell but i know sulfur does not eradicate these things what ever they are. Thanks for the replies!Well, keep working on it, and don’t take anything for granted. I am a negative person and find it hard to believe that anyone could have An infestation of beneficial mites. L O L! But I guess stranger things have happened! But keep your guns loaded! And good luck
