    Bugs in Media...Should I be Worried?

    So while watering all the neps on my grow rack yesterday, I noticed a small (1mm-ish) brown bug scurry across some media (perlite/LFS). Upon closer inspection, I saw that these were in nearly all my pots since they are all next to each other.
    should I be worried? I fee like bugs are gonna make a home anywhere...but are they detrimental?
    If so, what do I need to do?
    Thanks,
    Kyle

    i have black ones with wings that jump, your typical springtails so thats what they might be, do they jump at all and are you able to get a pic of them?

    I think they did jump a bit while scurrying from my prodding...unfortunately I don't have a very good camera to catch such small BUGgers. Should springtails worry me at all?
