I don't know what they are. There are some bugs that fly, but they have been around since I brought one pot in from the outside, they don't cause too much of a problem because I kill them if they get near the plant in the flower room.
I recently transplanted most of my vegging plants into bigger pots, I got dirt from the garage that's been sitting in a bag for a while, and dirt from old pots that have been sitting in my closet for a while.
Ok, finished mixing soil, transplanting and everything, and was sitting here when I caught motion out of the corner of my eye!
I look into the pot and there's thousands of TINY, MICROSCOPIC BUGS, JUMPING, like FLEAS!
How can I get rid of these pests!! What gets me is that they're not like the usual fly infestation, maybe they are the same species and these are just the babies, but there are SO MANY OF THEM, JUMPING OFF OF EACH SQUARE INCH OF SOIL!
I'm lucky I didn't fill the pots up because these guys can't get out all the way, but I assume they'll grow full size soon!
I sprayed them with water, and then covered the three pots that are infested with plastic wrap.
PLEASE, help me! I don't know if I should just go get a bug spray or what, I've never seen these before, they're TINY, think PORE-SIZED, and they JUMP, just like FLEAS, they look whitish, yellow!
What can I do?
Those white things in the picture are them.
Are they just the regular fly larvae? If so....I will get some lady bugs to show them a good time. :]
