Insects in the watering dish

Today I found these insects in the watering dish of Gardenia. Are they harmful? Do I need to use insecticide? They are in pots of other neighboring plants too but not on leaves. Thank you for your help.



  • Hello Nets,
    It looks like a "hoppstjärt" and they are harmful but anyhow they should not be in the pot. They thrive in wet soil and therefore you should try to dry out the soil and the insects hopefully will disappear. Good luck!
