Harvested Catnip has little bugs....What should i do?

12 years ago

This is my first time growing any herbs. I just did my first harvest from a Petco catnip plant that I put into a bigger pot. It had a lot of nice size buds and the stems were about 1 ft tall. I'm letting them dry on cardboard with the leaves on the stems still. I had some on a white paper plate for a night and in the morning I noticed there were some little yellowish brown bugs on the plate, I think they are thrips. I don't know what to do now. Can I still give this to my plants? Should I try kill the bugs still? I'm going to get some neem oil for the Catnip plant that's still in the pot.

I would appreciate any help. Thanks.
