    Sorry, none of your macros are clear enough resolution to make an accurate ID it would just be guessing at this point.

    I was thinking it's a fungus gnat? I'm not sure though. They have not shown any harm to the girls yet (knock-on-wood). How can I get them to disappear?

    Curious2 is right, the pictures are not big enough or detailed to positively ID the little critter but from what I can see, it sure looks like a fungus gnat. I know root aphids don't have that long of a body.

    If it were me, I would start treating it ASAP.

    ^ What should I do? Would neem oil work? When/where should I spray it? (All over before lights off?) OR just the soil at any time?

    Thanks!

    That's what they look like to me. I don't really know what to do, if I should do anything at all? Just a little neem oil to stay safe?

    fungus gnat for sure. get some sticky traps, cover the top of the medium in perlite. that should stop those little fuckers from breeding. they need a moist climate to reproduce. by covering the soil with perlite they will have nowhere to lay, innoculate, and hatch their eggs

    Original poster..... Looks like fungus gnats. The flies aren't the problem its their larvae that eat the fine root hairs. Too many can spoil a grow. Get yourself some ,mosquito dunks or SPINOSAD or gognats or GNATOFF or GNATROL.
    All these products contain a bacteria that's stops the larvae from feeding.


    Second poster.... Looks like whitefly to me.
