I got these tiny little white/clear buds crawling in my soil. they are the size of a pin head and almost impossible to see with the naked eye. they dont jump so I'm not thinking springtails. they have large antenna's and what appears to be 6 legs but it's so hard to count. these are found on some clones I got that previously had all kinds of spider mites and I killed them with SNS about 2 weeks ago. With close inspection there isn't a sign of a spider mite left but now I'm seeing these new tiny things in the soil.

this bug thing is killin me! I'll post pics of them magnified later today

fungus gnats?

DE on top soil will help as well as a soil drench with azamax

There isn't anything flying around and absolutely nothing on the plants

Point a fan at your soil and let it dry out good, if its fungus knats they will be gone, jmo dont water until the top 3-4 inches of your soil is completely dried out.
