Noticed these strange white things in my bumblebee millipede's container, what are they? Should I be concerned and replace the soil? This is the first I've seen of them

Not completely sure, the pic isn't close/clear enough, but it looks like baby millipedes.
They are very tiny and short when hatched getting their length as they grow.

They look like either baby millipedes or possibly small white isopods.

That leaf litter in the way makes it a little hard to tell.

Could you get a closer shot, or possibly take one out so we can see it closer?

Definitely baby millies. You can clearly see the head on this one.

Woah! Sorry I couldn't get any closer to them because they would get all blurry. And now I cant find any in the dirt to take any more pictures. Im so shocked! I only had one millipede, she must have been pregnant when I bought her. Thank you so much for the help, next time I see some I will get a better picture!
