Q.What Are These Tiny Silver Swarming Insects In My Raised Bed?
I found this nest/swarm of microscopic silver insects moving around in the corner of my raised bed today. They showed up overnight practically and they are just so tiny that it’s hard to get a good pic of them. I have no clue what they are. Can anyone help me identify them please? Any and all help is greatly appreciated!!

It is very hard to say without a photo. It may be possible to obtain one using a magnifying glass.
It sounds like it could be Springtails, but again, it would be hard to say on description alone.
If they are, in fact, Springtails then they pose no harm to the garden.
