    They are likely Oribatida, and if that is correct, it is highly unlikely that they are damaging your plants. They are mainly detritivores.

    Safer Soap (Potassium Salts of Fatty Acids) is great on spider mites and probably these as well. Do it in the evening when the plants are cool and if you are concerned about damaging your pings wash it off in an hour or so with water.
