    Are they slow- or fast-moving?

    You can submerge your plant under water for a day to kill them.

    I get those in my soil from time to time. I've never noticed any damage from their presence. If your really concerned about them you could always use a light mixture of neem oil. Alot of people here seem to use clearys, but short of ordering online I can't seem to find it.
    I always suspect everything could be a trap... thats why I'm still alive
