@misher21 also try and avoid neem oil, especially on plants flowering as its not the best for your health. There are a few other options you can try first but need to identify what it is before you can work out what to treat it with.

If you can grab a pack of yellow sticky traps they help a lot, especially with trying to identify the species of pest. If you can't find and of the yellow traps, some yellow paper and Vaseline will wok in a pinch at least to help you catch a better picture of the pest in question. There are quite a few different pests that vary in their effects on your crop so best to try get ontop of them quick. Most of the time they will come in to your grow room via the soil or on your clothes etc. Once you have a good picture of the pest, post it up here or jump into the common pests sub-thread and match it up with the ones on there, pretty well all the nasties are documented in the pests section of the forum. If you can't find which it is or are still unsure let us know and we will help you identify it. I have a sneaky suspicion @macky is right on this one though, 9/10 times it whitefly or fungus gnats.

I don't suppose you have a jewellers loupe or anything you could take a photo through to magnify it a bit.

If you dont have a jewellers loupe or usb microscope it might be a good idea to get one because they are sort or essential for checking trichomes at the end of the grow to see if the weed is ready for harvesting. They are also very handy for getting a closer look at bugs too.

I use mosquito dunks for killing fungus gnats, you leave them soaking in the water your going to feed the plant with and it pretty much wipes them out, but im not sure what that is on your leaves, is it the white spots you are meaning,  maybe spider mites?

Fungus gnats are the only bug iv seen up close so far so im not sure, but someone who knows will probably be along soon 🙂

@stootie yeah those mozzie dunks are the way to go, they will kill preety well any flying bug right off. And it is a bit hard to tell what those spots are, could be anything unfortunately a bit hard to see with the photo quality. I don't want to say mites but possible, could be something different all together, they do look a little like eggs of some kind. I think your right a loupe would help get a better look at least.

I believe the hotshot product kills everything, might be better suited if u unsure what bug u dealing with but your not allowed to stay in the same place with it for more then 4 hrs a day. so probably not ideal if your growing the plant in your living area xD
