I am growing indoor with a homemade organic soil mix. I have had two previous grows before this one with just a few thrips. This last grow however, I have some type of new pest that is like a chigger or “no see’um’s”
These bite ME and they fly. I’m embarrassed because my neck and arms look like I’ve got chicken pox, but it is from these darn bugs.
Right now I’ve been using Neem oil to repel them because I don’t want to use anything toxic on or around my plants. Again this is an indoor grown in two tents. A 4 x4 and a 3x3 both are contaminated. I’ve also been using fly paper and water bowels (where they drown). Any ideas on what they are or safe ways to kill them? My skin really appreciates any help!
