New to growing cannabis here. I decided to use a all organic soil from my compost I use for other vegetable plants. I noticed when flushing one of my cannabis plants there were very tiny white bugs that popped up and they only appear when the soil is drenched or after watering I see a few in my run off tray. My plants are now in flower and they look really great and healthy. I'm scared they may be root aphids but I've been told my plants will typically show a sign if they are present. any idea what these are and if they are harmful. please give me some advice. I attached a pic of them kinda hard to see. I also attached a pic of plant as well. Thanks in advance

I'm useless at giving advice on bugs but i had these once I just let the medium dry and they went away, they look more like little worms in person?

I believe those guys are a species of springtails called white blind springtail, compare to that and see if it your guy.

I love this stuff. It takes care of so much.
Whack them with this:
do u use this product with any other like switch off every week or so ? So they don’t get immune? I have read that if using the same thing over again u could possibly get the bugs immuned to it

We treat , skip 2 days, treat, skip 2 days treat last time. They don't have time to get immune.

If the pests have an exoskeleton buy a bag of food grade de earth can be bought at most hardware stores for $6, it is powder so you must dry your topsoil completely, spinkle dust around plant, wad up a piece of tp and dust your fans do not dust flower, leave for 72 hours give a light flush check ph and your good, it's cheap and organic you can eat it! never use pesticides on something ur going to inhale, while your plant is dusted bleach out ur grow area to kill off any other pests that may be lingering, useing a micro drop of dawn and de earth i saved my grow, allso know a place where you can buy good bugs to eat the bad bugs but this is usaley done for large grows! As long as ur pests have an exoskeleton de will kill there little asses pronto.
