Teeny tiny grey bugs

Posted by tweeza Texas (My Page) on

My figs have the tinyest, millimeter or two thread like, grey bugs in them. They are so small they can not be photographed and they are fast moving. You see them only because they are moving. What could they be? I eat them but when others see them they won't eat the figs. Thanks for the help in identifying these creatures. The tree is a Celeste or a Texas everbearing. Any help would be appreciated.

RE: Teeny tiny grey bugs

I don't know what these are inside your figs. However, my grandmother used to tell me that be afraid only of those bugs that eat (bite) you and not of the ones that you swallow, and think of these as just extra protein (if you can't remove them).
