    I found a white maggot looking worm on the top of the soil and noticed some small bugs crawling around the surface to small for pictures. What could I put in my soil to make sure they are dead and the eggs are too if there are any?

     
  2. Looks like it could be gnat larvae do you have flying gnats?
     
  3. As far as the small bugs I'm a noob but I had them and it can come from watering too much or other. I backed up on the watering and if it got bad I use yellow stickies for gnats or drench the soil with a pesticide Azamax is great if using neem use caution
     
  4. I didn't see gnats in the cage or nearby. And BudCrazy i usually leave my plants out in the rain and its been raining alot lately so ya. But it's really hot and sunny now so it should dry up the soil a little.
     
  5. I looked up some pictures of gnat larvae and it didn't look the same. It looked more like a caterpillar but it didn't have hairs or anything so I doubt it was that.
