I have recently spotted several tiny (5mm long) white insects in one of my plant pot's soil.
As you can see in the picture they are completely white, 6 long legs, 2 antennae and a thin long thorax.
Could you help me identify these insects and tell me if they are harmful to garden/plants?
Thanks in advance,

Do they move? If they don't move they look a bit like the shed skin of an aphid. If they move then they're something else.
