Small yellow bugs on surface of container soil.

So for the past few weeks I've been seeing what appears to be gnats flying around near my plants, thinking they were fungus gnats I let my plants dry out and applied some imid. This didn't seem to do much and I'm still seeing these little things flying around. During this time I've also noticed my plant has not been looking very healthy, after a closer inspection I noticed these small yellowish/white elongated bugs crawling around on the surface, I figure they're about 1 to 1.5mm in length. They look too long to be root aphids and they don't look like springtails to me. After hours of searching I still cant seem to figure out what it is and how to treat it.

I have included a photo of one, sorry for the low quality, I had to use a magnifying glass !
