Last night we got super heavy rains and when I went out this morning to check on my trees I noticed one doug fir in particular had a ton of these little guys…
They’re tiny, 1/16" or even half that.
When I say “a ton”, I mean A TON. All over the pot, all over the soil, even on the tree (although not the entire thing).
I did some quick searching and it looks like they are Springtails. I’ve never seen them in the garden before but it says they like moist conditions and decaying organic matter…makes sense given the circumstance.
Anyone else dealt with these? Leave them? Get rid of them?
The tree has no signs of ill health.
