We have hundreds of tiny clear to white worms laying dead after Temenix sprays. They have 2 little antennas. We do not see them prior to the spraying.

Expert Response

The critters are millipedes. Sweep them up and add to your compost pile.

They are not plant pests. Instead, they help clear the ;andscpe of dead organic material. See "Centipedes and Millipedes" - http://ipm.ucanr.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/pn7472.html .
