They kinda look like Mealybugs or maybe an aphid. I personally haven’t dealt with them so maybe someone who has could correct me

It dont look good they look like soil mites but they are decomposers so why are they attacking my seeds unless they are dead or sick or something

But yea I thought they could be root aphids too

Should I just start over

At this point that’s what I would suggest. unless you just treat and nix them.

Using correct ipm to start like I should been doing but Ive not ever had a problem this early

If my soil is infested can’t I like fumigate or something before I start again

I just dealt with spider mites. I won. I ozoned the rooms for three days straight sealed. Sprayed electrostatic bug spray on everything. And used neem on the mums and clones.

Some types of fumigation can be harmful to a ton of stuff, tents. Filters etc

Yes , i am going to have to restate it. Indoor i have never had any bugs. outside bugs ( aphids ) on only my damaged or weak plants, so i love bugs lol they show me my genetics by leaving the strong plants alone, but this is just cruel child abuse. Can you move to a new home lmao?
