    Hi Michelle seems not many people have a clue what it might be. There’s lots of types of bugs that have small tiny eggs like grains of rice, maybe you can try to take a picture and post it here ? I know it isn’t easy if it’s very small, but it can help. Usually when it’s under pots it’s ants. Small white insects might be midges, mites or thrips, they spend part of their life underground in the pupa stage I learned here:


    Hope you can show a picture so we can help!

    Loving the season!
