- Ignoring the sad state of the leaves (I just brought my plants in from the balcony a couple weeks ago and I’m still trying to figure out good light and water for them all) I was examining my carrot plant today when I noticed the leaves looked a little dusty. Like there were cobwebs in the spaces between the leaves that had caught some fine white dust. Curiously I was rubbing away some of it, when I spotted the tiny white dust MOVING ON ITS OWN NOOOOO.
What bugs are these, and should I be worried? How do I get rid of them?? I started growing carrots to feed my bunnies, with the intent that they’d eat them straight off the plant (the copper metal is a grate that domes over the plant so that they don’t eat it down to the root, and it can stay alive) so spotting bugs on it has seriously concerned me.
