White bugs in Superworm soil...

What in the world are they?! I opened the small container which seems to be humid (There's like... three worms left. And a larvae.) And on the lettuce, and all over the soil, there's these little round bugs...
-does the heeby jeeby dance- blech!

Are they dangerous? I want to just toss them in the dumpster and get new worms anyways -.-; Not like there are many anyways.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

Yuck. I would just toss them, especially since there are so few left. If you are set on feeding them out, rinse them first. I don't know what those bugs could be!

Gross... Well... I threw them out. And next time I get them, I'm sifting out the worms and placing in a critter keeper I have with fresh substrate.
