Default Black Dots on Buds

I was inspecting one of my plants and noticed TINY TINY black dots on a couple of buds. There was not many, but there was enough for me to notice. There was also a few on some of the smaller leaves. Also...the plant next to it has very red hairs that almost look burnt on a couple smaller buds. It is only about 4 weeks flower, so it isnt normal color change.

Please help!

seems like spidermites to me, if so then take two damp sponges and wipe the leave top and underneath parts at the same time, i think just do it about every 2 weeks if the infestation persists, get them quick tho, they can murder a crop in a hurry!!!!!!!!

your black dots and your orangeish hairs i believe are unrelated. The black dots could just be a dead tip within the bud where the plant kinda capped it off ( i had something similar...veeery small black dot... )...are you touching your buds with bare fingers? At all? MJ does not like that when it is alive...the oil and grease on your hands fucks with the color and severely lessens the health of the hairs where you touched. Hopes this helps some.

After I said this I noticed it was you kush...I thought i was speaking to a a beginner...so nevermind...you already know what I just said.

Default Spider Mites?

Ya I only touch the leaves and that is only if I want to see what the plant smells like. I tried to blow the dots off. The more I do research, the more I think its spider mites. Does anyone have any experience with these bastards? I am going to get some of those no pest strips and some neem oil and seal up the room very well. Then I will turn off the ventilation for 12 hours and put the pest strips up. Im hoping from what ive read on other sites that this will take care of it.

I think I saw the problem pretty early so hopefully I can stop these buggers!

Does anyone have any experience with the no pest strips you get at the hardware store?

yes they work great. I prefer to mix up my own remidies...boil a few ciggies and stick that water aside...then mix warm water, neem oil, a drop or three of bio-degradable soap, some pureed (sp) garlic and a ration of that nicotine water (dries those suckers out)....a 2 week regime of this...hardly anything can stand.

seriously go get you some SMC or pyrethiren concentrate and spray down those plants and the room. That's the only way i've been able to successfully kill them and keep them away.

Skunky is right. The Hot SHot No Pest Strips are good for prevention, and helping keep them at bay, but it will not kill them off.
I drop a 2 oz pyrethrum bomb. 24 hours later, rinse leaves with plain water.
Then every 3 days for 3 treatments, SMC or floramite treatments.
12 days after the bomb, there will be no survivors, a mass pogram if you will.
Mites reside on the under side of the leaf, usually the larger fans as it represents heat and a large food supply. So make sure you coat the undersides of the leaves well when treating with a spray.

I question whether it is mites. Usually, you will notice small specks of white on the leaves, mites dont like the buds. The white spots are from the mites literally tapping a cell like a keg, and sucking out the chorophyl. They are like a college frat house, in that they can drink a lot and reproduce often. HAHA

Look on the underside of the leaves, you can see small tan-ish colored beasties walking around. A more advanced infestation will have webbing strung from the main "vein" of the leaf and branching out.

Do you have an eye loop? Check out the spot closely. It might be a gnat or something else that just got stick in the trichomes like glue and died.

Default After further review!

HA!...Thanks guys!

After spending an hour looking over the ladies, I have come to the conclusion that it was DIRT or something! I couldnt find anymore of the spots and inspected the undersides of leaves. ALSO there was no white spots like you said.

I will continue to check them everyday just to be sure, but I think I was just being PARANOID

I will keep the No-pest strip up for a little while just to be sure!
