My plant has tiny little white bugs (about 0.5mm long, crawling in the soil.

What are they? How do I get rid of them?





Vine weevil, break up all the soil on the plant. Kill the bugs and repot in fresh compost.

these are .5mm long so they sound like springtails. do the 'skip' when disturbed. let the soil dry out a little and then they will move home ! They dont do any harm really.

Sorry, I don't know what springtails are SBG and similarly had thought vine weevil, but if vw would be about 1cm ?
