I had two 5 gallon buckets I used to grow eggplant and pepper last season. I just got them up from the basement to amend the soil and put eggplant seedlings in. One of the bucket has depleted soil and a lot of what I think are millipedes. What should I do with it now? do I have to dump the soil? Are they harmful to the plants. Can I just scoop out some soil and hope not all of the five gallon is infested?
Photo attached so that somebody can confirm those are millipedes.
Both the buckets were next to each other, but only one has the infestation. This one had another small planter upside down in it was the only difference.
