Well, not insects as such, more of a sort of bug in their own right but they are very primitive and belong to the Order Collembola.
I didn't even know these existed until I could see them!
I had fun in December watching the antics of some on top of one of my water barrels where there was some stood water. In this pic you can see a group of very young babies, even different species play with each other. At the left side there is a baby one (parents around 2.5mm) which was around 0.5mm long, so you can see how small the others are.
