Questions White bugs on my soil.
Hello all, I recently was watering my plants when i noticed these little white bugs motoring all around the top of my soil. I dont see any signs of them anywhere on the plant and seem to be staying on the soil. Its living soil (organic). Have grown many plants so far in the tent and never saw them before or just didn't notice them. Any help on what they might be would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
There about the size of a sugar granule. I've never seen anything like these and dont resemble anything I've seen. Closest I've found in resemblance is dust mites but I dont know how small they actually are.
After waking up and having coffee and a couple of wake n bakes, I think they are spider mites mate! But they usually sit on the plant not the soil, unless there is a lot of them. Have a god check underneath the leaves, close up, and see if you can seee any there. Also look out for tiny white dots on the leaves, like the colur has been sucked out of certain spots
They look like mould mites (tyrophagus putrescentiae) from the picture...they dont damage the plants, apparently, and only eat fungai but can carry some nasty bacteria
Dont drench the soil as they thrive in high humidity
