Been noticing some patchy light trails about 2mm wide showing up over my leaves over the past few weeks, its a White Lightning, outdoors in central Vic and probably in its last 2 weeks of flower.

Started out on a few of the lower shade leaves but spread across most of the bigger leaves now. Plant had been sprayed with a neem solution leading up to flowering but none for the last 8 weeks or so. Looks like little trails where whatever these bugs are have been tunnelling inside the leaves or eating it through from the underside.

When I look on the underside of the leaves I can see some tiny bugs and eggs, can't really see them without the jewellers loupe but I tried to get a few pics nonetheless. Apologies for the blur, these things really are tiny!

Not too worried for now, I suspect ill be pulling it in the next week or so, just wondering what they are so I can possibly mitigate the issue before I go again next season. There is also a Vanilla Kush planted right beside it, they both went out the same time about 10 weeks ago but the Kush seems to be far less affected by the bugs strangely enough seeing as though they're hanging about a foot apart. I don't get a lot of time to spend on them so it kind of snuck up on me!
