Bugs in Irish Moss

Anonymous added on July 12, 2016 | Answered

My Irish moss has teeny-tiny bugs crawling around in it and some of the moss has died. Are the bugs needed by the moss or are they bad for it? What should I do? They look like tiny mites of some kind.

It's hard to say what the insect is from your description but I would go ahead and treat the Irish Moss with Neem Oil. It acts as both an insecticide and fungicide.
