      My indoor garden has small spider looking bugs. Mites? Not on leaves just in the soil. What can I do? HELP?

      Friday, August 26th, 2011

      I have been trying to research what these little bugs are. I can see them with my naked eye, they are different colors some are like khaki color and other are reddish brown. There are a few flying insects in the room that I got under control with sticky paper. Now the issue I am having is there are no webs anywhere on my plants. Not a one. These bugs are only in the soil and I have been loosing a lot of plants. Or they are starting to go. I have tried all the home remedies for spider mites, made the jalapeno garlic mix, I went to Lowe’s and got a spray that is ECO friendly and has not tamed the problem. I am not sure what to do. It seems as though they are only in the soil and killing the plants from there. I don’t want to loose my indoor veggie garden as its really starting to grow well. All the web sites I found on the subject said they were almost impossible to see with the naked eye so that’s why I am thinking that it may not be spider mites. They are about the size of a small tick and crawl much like a tick does. I just don’t know what to do. I have a fan in the room, all my pots are draining well and not over watered. I just don’t know what to do short of killing off all my veggies that are growing huge already. Please any help would be more then great. I would post a picture but I just got on yahoo answers and am not sure that I can post pictures or not. Thanks for any help you may give me and please don’t say just spray them with soapy water cause that is NOT going to work I have tried all home remedies. Not at the same time of course. I have let each try and run there course on separate plants in containers to do more a less a test of what would and would not work. The only one that came close was the purchased eco friendly one and even that didn’t take care of it with a few applications over a month and a half. Please help
      Sorry if I wasn’t clear but the insecticidal soap is not working at all. I spray it right on them and they just walk off and bury themselves back into the soil

          Will rusty tools used on my veggie garden give my customers tetanus?

          Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

          I had a small veggie garden last year, so this wasn’t a problem as I used some small tools I purchased myself. This year, I plan to go pro, and came upon some old tools (spade, pitchfork, rake, etc) that were here from the previous owner of my house. Problem is, they’re rusty. Can I use them safely, or should I scrap them and buy all new stuff?
          PS: I will be composting, too.
