Looks like some type of Termite to me.
  • Termites have straight antennae and two sets of wings that are equal length. They also have two body segments with a straight abdomen.
  • Ants have antennae that bend in the middle, two sets of wings of different lengths and three body segments with a very narrow waist.

You managed to get that bug in your garden by a simple twist of fate.

i think the bug bothers you more than the plant.

Why is the bug not getting bigger? How many total days have you been watching and obsessing over this bug?

Thank you for explaining but please tell me how I managed to get this in my garden when it’s enclosed, only one pot has it and why are they not getting bigger like regular ants that don’t require a microscope at a 50x zoom
Likely in the dirt, luck of the draw?
