Hello everyone,

I've recently discovered some shrimp like bugs hanging out in the root systems in my DWC. I have found them on my parsley and basil. The parsley looks pretty poor almost like an iron deficiency with yellowing in the leaves, but the basil is beautiful and seems unaffected.

I'm wondering if anyone can identify this guy and let me know if he is harmful or beneficial.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Don

I don't remember what they are called but they are beneficial, I think.  Search some of the old Green Acre posts. 

search scud

Great! Thank you. I believe Scuds is correct. Glad they're beneficial.
