TOPIC: Insects/Pets in the soil

Insects/Pets in the soil 1 month 2 days ago #51618

My Fukien tea tree was severely infested with aphids and spider mites. But after repotting and constantly removing them as I see them with soil with good drainage( tinyurl.com/fukteatree ), now they are almost gone. Once a week I see a bunch of small white insects sitting under the sticky leaf.
Today when I was watering the tree. I see very tiny insects coming up from the soil.
They were of 2 types. One white and thin, and the other was black with a round bottom.
Both were so tiny that I couldn't take pictures of them.

I want to know how to treat them?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

The other bugs may be cubby gnats. Cause for both is keeping the soil too wet.

Hi Auk,

Thank for your reply.

If you are able to see them please help with the treatment.

Same reply as to another topic a moment ago:

Water a bit less, let the soil dry between waterings (but do not let it dry out).

Also, remove the pebbles from your mallsai so you can actually see the soil.
