Thread: Mites or Springtails?

  1. #1

    Question Mites or Springtails?

    Hey guys,

    I've recently noticed a lot of tiny white insects swarming in the soil and moss that I have in my vivarium. I have noticed that they seem to swarm around my WTF's feces. I have been trying to do some research and I just can't seem to figure out whether they are mites or springtails? Does anyone have any advice or tips to look for that would help me make the distinction?

    Springtails move much more quickly than mites- and they swarm around feces.
    Sounds like you have springtails.
