in the veggie garden. They are smaller than a pin head n just bigger than a pin point! I can't tell how many legs they have cuz I can't find my mag-glass!!! They do scurry around a lot tho AND I actually had a red/orange one on my hand n it took two hard pokes with the finger to kill it.

Any ideas as to who they may be? Friend or foe?

Terri,
Sounds a bit like maybe aphids???? [dunno]

Or there's those little itty~bitty spiders *at least they're here*

What plants were they on???

Ya know...after re-reading my post...the part that I left out was that they were in they 'hay bale' section of the veggie garden...which no longer exists [tears]

I think I may have gotten a hold of some hay with Peckeran (phonics!sp?!) because everything that was in the bales started 'curling' and turning yellow. Tomatoes, squash, peppers.

Finally, I 86'd the entire project. [Mad]

Am attempting to save squash from project. Pulled peppers out real early on and they seem to be doing well.Am just watching them all to see what finally happens with them.

I followed fertilizing directions that I found on U of Georgia website, [Confused] so all I can figure is that the mix was just too rich or the bales had that Peckeran stuff in them. [dunno]

tiny, tiny, round, red/orange bugs that move REALLY fast?? about the size of a pin head? gotta squish pretty hard to smoosh them? and they leave a trail of blood?

have them around here too. all over, in fact - in the gardens, on the walls of the house...even found some inside the other day (which is unusual - they're not usually inside), on the sidewalks...

dunno what they are tho. they seem to be harmless.

[grin] I'm glad someone else has seen them too! Thought I was gettin' a wee bit closer to the edge! Can't risk [nutz] for a few more years! LOL!

I have not seen them in my garden soil tho....just in those dad-burned hay bales!
