Hi - I seem to have an infestation of the above critters, they're just like sand hoppers only brown & they're all tucked in under pots etc. Having been on the internet I see they're not insects but crustaceans from OZ? I believe they must have been introduced with a plant/s but have got to silly amounts now & I want to know how to get rid of them. My neighbours do not have any.
I used RAID the fly spray on them the other day which worked but nearly caused me to expire with the smell!
Has anyone else got these pests & safely got rid of them & do they cause any damage in the garden?
As they jump about so much it's difficult to photograph!
