Tiny Insect ID
I have a huge infestation in my raised beds of these little insects and I have no idea what they are. They were introduced from some drip emitters I bought at a local nursery. When I put my drip irrigation system together and flushed the system with water, all these tiny insects streamed out of the emitters.
Now I probably have millions of them in my beds. They don't climb on my seedlings and none of the seedlings have died as a result of these things but I'M creeped out. What are they? How can I get rid of them? I've sprayed organic sprays that kill them but more come back in only a few minutes. I've mulched only a few areas in my beds and so far they like staying in the mulch and they like to stay on the drip irrigation hoses. In the morning the hose is just speckled with brown, there's so many sleeping bugs on them.
Please help! My skin is crawling just writing this!
