Hi, I cannot find it through the thread but can someone help me?

I just purchased neem oil to treat the green aphids of my VFTs. The question is, how much of the dilution should I make, and how frequent should I apply it to my plants? thanks!

Hello, I can’t identify these bugs that are on my flytraps. I’ve been searching around but I’m stumped. Does anyone know what they are & how I get rid of them?

Ugh, had to go look something up after seeing some very small flea-like insects around my plant. I've dealt with a flea infestation and they were not fun, so I was really paranoid. Glad I saw this, pretty sure these are just springtails...scared the crap out of me. lol

Can anyone help me ID these very small crawling insects that have sprung onto my VFT?
As far as I can tell the plant looks fine at the moment. So, if it is anything to worry about, it has just begun.

Those look like springtails to me. Give one a poke with a toothpick. See if it "disappears".

No jumping as fleas. They just scurry around when poked. Managed to catch one with a toothpick but the things are so darn tiny I can't make anything of them. By looks they resemble the shape of a beetle - a head with antennae and a large rear.

I've been guided by a very knowledgeable gentleman that these might infact really be springtails. The description I find most appropriate is that of collembola symphypleona.
