    Damn that sucks, looks like you got some aphid infested clones. Best you can do is spray them down with an insecticidal spray while they are still young.

      For just the tent and equipment you can use an alcohol and water mix, or a bleach and water mix, or a mr. clean and water mix, any high strength household cleaner will work well. Just make sure to dry and air the place out a bit before bringing plants back in

        Alcohol and water 50/50. works every time. Keep spraying the leaves before lights are out. Over and under
        I have a battle with them every summer in my outdoor grow.
        Just because people are over 50 doesn’t mean they know everything.
        You can teach a old dog new tricks - But it will still think the old ways are the “best” lol

          thanks for the input guys. i also three other seedling in the tent, that are 2 weeks olds. I sprayed them all with the Monterey, and left them outside all day, cleaned the tent with lysol. you think I should respray the plants everyother day for a week or so? I didn't see any on the plants then i put them back in the tent. but i don't want to kill the young ladies.

            Watch for ants also as they farm aphids. There is a warning with spinosad that it may not be safe in flower.

              I ordered some lady buds, but takes them 5 days to arrive. the clone is still vegging, but do you thing the 50/50 alcohol/water is better than the spinosad? how often can I spray the 50/50, without hurting the plant? the infestation looks like scale bugs. they do not move when you touch them. been growing in this tent for 2 years, never had a bug, damm clone!

                I have used the alcohol/water 50/50 every other day, every third day is good, and one can reduce the alcohol to 1 part and 8 parts water. The alcohol evaporates very fast (good ventilation) leaving the water to evaporate. Some express concerns over ISO, Everclear can be used as well, just costs more. One can simply smash as many as can be found until the treatment can be done.
