I found these little grey bugs in one of my water trays. Does anyone know what they are?

Look kind of like mosquito larvae. I get them in my trays from time to time. I use them on my sundews :lol: If they are, they'll do this weird sidewinder movement when you try to grab them

I was just checking, and I noticed that there were some on one of my plants.

need better quality pics. also a scale in the picture so we can have some reference point to the size of the thing. stick a penny in the picture somewhere near the bugs and take the pic again ?

I can't get a better picture, they are tiny. They are about the length of a sarracenia seed, but much skinnier. If I put a penny in it would focus on the penny rather than the bugs
