Some days ago I found out that my chillies had some kind of small worms-looking things. Probably thrips or something else. And I had some kind of flies.

I sprayed them with soapwater. Some of the plants did not like this however. After that I added also added fertilizer, since some of they looked like it was time to get it.

So now I wounder, are all these spots consequences of all up and down last week, or could this be some kind of virus? "Bacterial leaf spot"?

  • Next time just remove the "small worm looking things" by hand. – Rob May 10 '19 at 16:08
  • @Rob I felt there were several and wanted to kill them all. But I have removed them by hand now afterwards. Now I have only found them on my tomato plants and not so many of them. – J2B May 10 '19 at 16:22
  • If you are going to use an insecticide use a neonicotinoid and not soap. – Rob May 10 '19 at 16:35
  • @Rob isn't that what they think is the cause to massive bee death? – J2B May 10 '19 at 16:47

    Imho, this is a reaction to the use of soapy water and not an infection or a reaction to the bugs. – Rob May 10 '19 at 17:23
