In the wild, the soil microbial biome cycle nutrients and feeds plants the way nature intended. Sometimes this cycle of life is called the Soil Food Web or living soil. The full spectrum soil ecosystem includes bacteria, fungi, archaea, beneficial nematodes, amoeba, flagellates and micro-arthropods. Small insects, some barely visible to the eye, contribute by chopping up leaves and other organic matter, creating tunnels in the soil which helps water and air move, and eating other member of the soil food web.
Healthy soil has broad biodiversity across all 7 types of life – and among the arthropods it includes springtails, beetles, and ants, sowbugs, spiders and mites, centipedes and millipedes. Nearly every type of soil is home to multiple species of arthropods.
