Bug ID UPDATED

Bug ID UPDATED

bugidIt’s a Thrip!
I was watering the jungle today and noticed the big slip we cut off of Sweet Potato Experiment #1 had more action than usual happening on it’s leaves. Tiny roundish black spots which I’m sure are eggs and 1mm (if that) squirmers, some leaves with one and others covered.

I’m sure I remember seeing these when I was younger but I didn’t have my super cool olloclip zoom lens or an iPhone then… Probably a good thing. I barely held it together trying to take the picture. Squirmy. YUCK.

I’m going to go searching for an id and figure out if soapy water is enough because there are A LOT. If you  know what it is please let me know in the comments! Thanks!
