Tiny Red Bugs
I have my herbs in large white styrofoam containers out on the porch. Over the last few days I have noticed tiny red bugs crawling on the soil and on/around the containers. They're bright red, about the size of a pinhead, and very agile like ants. With my poor eyesight, I couldn't tell how many legs they have. But if you squish 'em, you will certainly see red "juice". So far I do not notice any damage on my herbs' foliage. But I don't know if these red things are causing root damage. Does anyone have any idea what these red bugs are? Do they do any harm or could I safely ignore them? Any info will be helpful. Thanks.
