Common cannabis pests

You’ve probably seen these before, but these seemingly harmless garden creatures will happily eat your cannabis leaves!

Spider Mites
Spider mites are often caught from another grow room, and their bites leave small white speckles all over your leaves. They’re so small they can be hard to see, though the best place to look is underneath leaves. You may see webbing if there’s enough of them living on the plant.
This page aims to be a comprehensive resource on the different types of bugs / pests / mold that can affect your marijuana crop, along with tips for preventing and solving each problem.

Aphids live under leaves & have different forms depending on their stage of life

These mites are so small you will likely never see them even under a magnifier. However, you can tell your plant has been infected because your new leaves will be blistered, twisted and glossy. The overall plant will also be growing poorly and if it’s flowering the buds may turn brown. Broad mites and russet mites are often mistaken for other problems like nutrient deficiencies, heat stress or pH problems.
