So I don't have any big issue in my closet and tent at all besides a few fruit flies here and there from my soil but I've spotted some sort of spider mites outside on my deck just running around. Only a couple here and there. I know it's that time of year. Seems like the little fuckers smell the goodness inside and are trying to get a peek. Any suggestions or experiences with keeping them outside? Also I found this cool bug on my dwarf sunflower plant yesterday. Any ideas?

You’ll be fine Steve, clover mites are super easy to kill if they get inside. A spray of spinosad will kill the dead. And the leaf hoppers is usually don’t effect indoor grows unless somehow a number of them made it in.

Thanks for the input! I've been gardening outside over the years with my dad teaching me the beauty of it. We have grown everything from snap peas, asparagus, summer squash, and or specialty super hot peppers like maruga scorpions, 7 pot, bukjalokia chili, ghost chili's, Tasmanian habaneros and so on. We make our own special sauces and dry flake. New to the indoor aspect of it as far as keeping insects out and so on. Thanks my man
