There are tiny insects living in the substrate of my pink toe's terrarium.  I used insect killer (very carefully to not get my pink toe) on them once, but they have come back. I'm not sure what they are and if I should be concerned or just leave them be.  Looks like they might be eating detritus from leftover cricket parts.  Is it a sign I need to change out the substrate/clean the terrarium?  I am betting they will come back, even if I replace almost all of the substrate, I think they may have come in on the living plants from the pet store.  Please advise! Much thanks!
