Tiny bugs in my indoor plant soil is not a problem. I take great care of my plants, I wash them frequently. However, for my little ones, the problem is the ants. It just started a couple of months ago, I was using some of my favorite plants, the ants just started invading them, even though I make sure to wash them as much as I can, and I place the plant on the floor. Any ideas how to stop this?

We don't really know what you've done to keep the mites from your plants, but I've heard of several ways of dealing with them including washing them in a chlorine bleach solution, wiping them down with the hose, or spraying them with the hose.

That being said, you could potentially prevent mites in the future by keeping your plants moist with daily misting. If your plants need to be watered that often, maybe it's time to switch to larger pots. The more time the soil spends drying out and getting hot, the more likely it is to become infested with mites.
