How can I get rid of teeny white bugs in my herb garden?

I just noticed some of these little bugs in the soil of my rosemary plant. I'm not sure what they are, but they are white and very tiny. My plant is indoors, and I'm not sure what to do to get rid of them. Any ideas?

Sometimes rinsing a plant under the tap can help, including under leaves. Or use a quart of water w/ a little detergent added and rinse thoroughly.

Good luck...this happens to me, too sometimes. I sometimes squish the little bugs by hand. Also, make sure you have good drainage and let the plant dry a little in between waterings.
