Does anyone know what this insect is and whether it is harmful?
I live near San Diego CA.
This picture is highly magnified. The actual insect is about the size of a pencil dot.
The color varies from a pale cream color to this darker color.
I find them on most of my Bonsai of all varieties.
The largest concentration seems to be around old cut sites and under loose bark.
They do not appear to be doing any damage but they seem to be everywhere this year.

This picture shows the actual size next to 3 mm wire

Thanks for the feedback
Google search says that it is a Springtail however I have ruled that out because they do not jump like springtails do.
