Minute, really minute critters dancing in water runoff dish

Found these tiny tiny white specks dancing around in the runoff water. Maybe a millimeter in length. Might be a nymph of some kind. Nothing seen in the soil from above or flying around.
Any idea?

Oh, a squirt of Simple Green killed them instantly but I’m not about to flush my girl with it.

Made me think of springtails, they showed up in the garden last year.

Idc what they are. Kill em.

Use mosquito bits to top your soil. :+1: available in most box stores.

You could also play with neem oil, or a skim/sour milk water mix.


I just ordered some Diatomaceous Earth. Will give that a try.
