Insect and Bug ID forum: Bugging my baby Pilea peperomioides

I recently planted some Pilea peperomioides seeds. They sprouted fast (about 3 days) and appeared to be doing well. Then I noticed these tiny things moving in the soil. Upon closer examination, there they were, theses tiny green bugs. I'm a novice and can't imagine where they came from or if they were dangerous and would invade my other plants, so I put them outside on the porch. Heartbroken, I decided to start from scratch. Three days later 2 more seedlings sprouted. Oh, and the first one that was isolated on the porch for a week where I thought it would surely die ( in chilly New York weather) is still alive and well, bugs and all. By the way they were all started in Miracle Grow Moisture Mix Potting soil I bought at the Home Depot.
I would appreciate it if someone could please help me get rid of the bugs.Any help at all is appreciated.

Thank You! to NGA

I'm not sure what they are but next time you water mix insecticidal soap into your watering can.
