    My indoor garden has small spider looking bugs. Mites? Not on leaves just in the soil. What can I do? HELP?

    Friday, August 26th, 2011

    I have been trying to research what these little bugs are. I can see them with my naked eye, they are different colors some are like khaki color and other are reddish brown. There are a few flying insects in the room that I got under control with sticky paper. Now the issue I am having is there are no webs anywhere on my plants. Not a one. These bugs are only in the soil and I have been loosing a lot of plants. Or they are starting to go. I have tried all the home remedies for spider mites, made the jalapeno garlic mix, I went to Lowe’s and got a spray that is ECO friendly and has not tamed the problem. I am not sure what to do. It seems as though they are only in the soil and killing the plants from there. I don’t want to loose my indoor veggie garden as its really starting to grow well. All the web sites I found on the subject said they were almost impossible to see with the naked eye so that’s why I am thinking that it may not be spider mites. They are about the size of a small tick and crawl much like a tick does. I just don’t know what to do. I have a fan in the room, all my pots are draining well and not over watered. I just don’t know what to do short of killing off all my veggies that are growing huge already. Please any help would be more then great. I would post a picture but I just got on yahoo answers and am not sure that I can post pictures or not. Thanks for any help you may give me and please don’t say just spray them with soapy water cause that is NOT going to work I have tried all home remedies. Not at the same time of course. I have let each try and run there course on separate plants in containers to do more a less a test of what would and would not work. The only one that came close was the purchased eco friendly one and even that didn’t take care of it with a few applications over a month and a half. Please help
    Sorry if I wasn’t clear but the insecticidal soap is not working at all. I spray it right on them and they just walk off and bury themselves back into the soil

          Vegetable Garden in Phoenix

          Saturday, May 7th, 2011

          This is my first garden. I started the project thinking we’d just have 1 or 2 raised beds but it turned into something much bigger. Everything is done organically (no pesticides, no chemical fertilizers etc.) and “veganically” (without the use of manure, blood meal, bone meal or any kind of animal product). 99% of the vegetables are “heirloom” or “open-pollinated” meaning the seed has been bred true and saved for at least 50 years and will continue to breed true when you save the seed…as opposed to a “hybrid” which has generally been bred for appearance, shelf life, yield, disease resistance but rarely taste. A saved hybrid seed will not breed true to the vegetable you saved it from. My family and I built the structure. I started everything by seed, mostly indoors under a grow-light system. What I’m growing now: Tomatoes Peppers Eggplant Basil Squash Cucumbers Watermelon Cantaloupe Mint Green Beans Calendula (for tea) Tepary Beans Onions Garlic Indian Corn Strawberries Okra Tomatillo Sunflowers Parsley Amaranth What I grew over the winter: Lettuce Kale Rapini Broccoli Arugula Beets Carrots Peas Bok Choy Spigariello On an unrelated note, check out the band I’m in with my 3 brothers. www.kongos.com
