I found one bug. But it seems like if there's 1 there has to be 100. I don't have a macro lense. This is the best pic I could snap. It did not jump when I tried to get it with tweezers so it's not a spring tail. I've been having the worst luck with these plants lately! Any chance it's just a non threatening passerby!???Image

It was moving.
Ugh aphids. Ive made it 2 years into this hobby with no pests. They were bound to find me. Isolate and soak? I have the spray below if it's safe. Image

It could be a springtail. It's very hard to tell from that image

It was moving when I spotted it. I can try to get a better pic but I dont have a fancy camera. Just a cell phone and an older quickshot type deal. I do have springtails in another pot. Everytime I tap it I see them jump. This one didn't jump when I touched near it. Just conitinued walking along.

Do you have a magnifying glass? It might be hard to get things in focus, but it might help.

It has been suggested they are thrips. Does the Bayer 3 in 1 kill those as well?
