Help identify my bug problem!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
We found an infestation of tiny grayish bugs. They are concentrated around the water and food, not inside the coop, can't see bugs on the birds. They don't look like mites from images I've Googled. Can anyone tell me what these are?

Sorry not know name in English, but can pinch so careful. Sevin dust and D.E mixed and sprinkle will kill.

They are springtails. As far as I know they are harmless.

They look like springtails, they shouldn't hurt anything. They do not pinch, so don't worry.
