    They dont seem to be attacking my plants at all, just jumping around in the soil, I'm doing a ROLS this time around and want to check if they are beneficial or not. DE seems to do nothing to them, they just crawl right through and over it.

    that's Hugo, you don't know Hugo?
    it's a soil mite, they show up all the time in organic soil, they're ok, they help break down organic material in the soil, they don't eat plants.

    I tried searching Hugo and nothing came up. Is that a street nickname for it?

    Looks like a springtail, pretty harmless.
