Morning All, 

Found a couple of Symphylans on one of my plants this morning.


Not sure if it was just an isolated case but if not will Neem Oil spray work with these?

Probably mate, even if it doesn't kill them, the smell will discourage them from staying.


Are you sure that what you saw? or is this a pic from google? looks a bit springtail ish, just a bit long. If you have springtails then there is no need to be concerned they are good for the medium, and wont bother the plants.

Thanks @macky
Not 100% sure mate. I noticed it this morning and then by chance I was researching organic soils and someone had posted that picture of the Symphylan and it looked exactly like the thing I had seen. 
Just looking at the Springtails now and although it definitely looked more like the Symphylan I can’t be completely sure. I’ll hold off on the neem oil for now then and see if I can spot anymore and get some pictures.
