Recently I've noticed a dense population of tiny white critters crawling around in some of my VFT pots. Not on the plants themselves just the pots. I am not detecting any leaf damage as of yet on any of my plants but the population of these things has exploded lately. They are not fungus gnat larvae...they move around pretty fast. Also, when you try to touch or remove them, they seem to be able to jump short distances...kinda like fleas.
Are these springtails? Are they harmful? What should I use to get rid of them that wont hurt my plants?
Thanks in advance.
