these pests have all the characteristics of aphids except that they are only in my soil less medium. can i use neem in the coco mix, and if so how do i apply it. or is there another alternative? i also have winged aphid flying around...at one point i could kill them all by hand but way more were layin below the surface.

sounds like you may have fungus gnats, no matter what the buggers are Neem oil can deal with it

mix a tblspoon neem oil in a gallon of water and water the plants, to kill the larve

yellow sticky traps placed on the soil are great for returning adults

^^^I totally agree with you, man!

Neem's the second-most amazing plant on the planet, after Cannabis.
