I can spot BM's with a quality loupe, easily discernible with a 60-100x. Maybe my eyes are just like superman vision, I don't know.
How did you identify them if you couldn't see them with a 60-100x scope?
My eyes are old, my friend. I could spot the eggs, however, I've also been fighting whiteflies. So I figured it was whitefly eggs. The symptoms I have exactly match a broadmite infestation as well. Distorted new growth and a slew of symptoms that look like nutrient deficiencies. I also bought a new 40x-800-x microscope and could spot them then. Also a friend on another forum pm's me and told me about some clones I got from a mutual friend about 3 years ago and that he shortly after that discovered he had broadmites. The math is right. I've cleaned out my veg and flower rooms and spray with Green Cleaner by Old Stage, Avid and Forbid. They're still here, but I feel I have the upper hand now. They are not in the flower room
