  1. what are these tiny lttle bugs in my soil that look like lice. they arent on any part of the plant though but there are hundreds of them
  2. Spider mites possibly?
  3. Probably Thrips. Put some garlic powder in your dirt.
  4. definatley not spider mites as they "set-up-shop" first on the undsersides of leaves. What kind/where did you get this soil? is it just dirt from outside? If the bugs are not on the plant, its even possible that they could be beneficial to your plant. are they microscopic? To play it safe, I would put sticky tape around the lips or your containers to contain the lil buggers and ensure they dont spread
