Bugs in the soil


(Saulo Ricci) #1

Hi Jonas and community,

I was wondering if you guys have any clue about the bugs or larvas that I have found in one of my Pine bonsai soil. I’ve noticed they started appearing since I adopted organic fertilizer - cottonseed meal - and I’m not sure what impact they might cause in the root system of my tree. They are identical with the ones in the pictures I enclosed here. Do you guys have any suggestion of what kinda soil bug I’m dealing with and if they can damage the roots of my bonsai?

Thank you very much,

Saulo

Earwig. It may chew on leaves.
