    This one was a tiny dot found in my glue trap. It's magnified about 100x.
    It was completely clear, but it darkened after it died. (I have a 100x children's microscope
    so I could tell.) It appears to have six legs and two very long antenna.
    It's very very small. Just a dot.

    and

    This one is much bigger - maybe more like 16/-1/4 of an inch long.
    It's dark brown and had antenna too. It's a bit fuzzy as it picked up by a kleenex.
    It seemed dried up and dead at that time.

    The first one is NOT one I posted before.
    The second one is a better photo (although still pretty bad).

    Thanks so much for any help (and reassurance)!!!

    I can find no mite as big as that bug. There is no mite as big as that bug. Someone (maybe you) already said mite, but I searched, and there areno tmites as big as that. It's big.

    Also, the first one under a microscope does not really look like any collembola photos I can find online...but it might be one.

    Thanks though!
