Hi all. I notice today a couple of my plants are being attacked by something. In the pictures there is one of the only insect I could find on the plants. The leaf stems have been eaten and some of the leaves. I live in New England. In the last week we had lots of rain. Not sure if this has anything to do with it. Plants are all Sativa. Some clones and some from seeds. All are fems. The plant in the pics is by its self. The other plants I have are together. Any ideas?

I have a plastic liter bottle with a cap that I drilled small holes in(5/64 drill bit maybe). Then load in the DE and sprinkle/squeeze away. People recommend wearing a mask as the particles are small and sharp though I am and idget and don’t do that. I leave the dust on the plants for a day or so then rinse it off. If they continue to fight me, I will mix up some full strength Dr Zymes and soak the plants. I will probably do that anyway as the bugs are getting to my roses and berry bushes too.
