Pest?

Recommended Posts

Hey all so ive watered one of my seedling trays and thought I saw some really small bugs crawing around in the soil. 

This is the nest photo i could take. Anyone got an ID and know if I need to do anything about it?

 

Many thanks.

Maybe? Species and host dependant. 

Watch for damage. 

 

Tis the time of emergence from the soil temperature wise.  

 

Any damage with typically show as white to silvery speckles/spots, they'll distort and stunt growth if feeding in high numbers. They inject an enzyme into the plant when feeding that does damage and they drink the "soup". 

 

They prefer drier conditions. Higher humidity if you can get away with it help a lot.
