Thrips, springtails and symphalans
In the water reservoir of some of my violets, I'm finding some teeny light colored bugs floating on top of the water when I look to replenish the water. They move pretty fast and are so small they just skitter around on the tension of the water surface. On one strep, it looks like dust on the water until I look really close and see movement.
Do I need to worry about these? I don't notice anything moving on any of my blossoms, just on the water surface. I looked on Doctor Optimara and Steve Reed's bug sections and can't decide which of these fit the description. Do symphalans move fast?
Nancy, can you shed some light for me?
