Help! Lotsa bugs in my potting soil

5 months ago

Hello, I have a container garden on my deck in NYC. I recently noticed that many of the containers (if not all) have tiny light brown-ish bugs crawling around in the soil. I've done some research and can't tell if they are root aphids, soil mites or something else. My plants seem to be ok... weather has been a bit weird so they aren't growing amazingly well but aren't totally suffering. It's really hard to snap a photo but I've included a relatively blurry one. Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated!
